Five persons were killed and 29 injured after a major portion of a foot overbridge near a train station in south Mumbai collapsed Thursday evening, officials said.

All the injured have been rushed to nearby hospitals, a disaster management cell official said.

An eywitness said when the bridge collapsed, there was a red light at the nearby signal, and that is why the death toll was not more. Another eyewitness said the overbridge was being used despite repairs being carried out this morning. The incident took place around 7.30 pm when a major portion of the bridge caved in, the official said.
