Navi Mumbai: One person died and six others were injured after a concrete slab that served as a bridge over a river collapsed at the tourist hotspot of Kashid around 8.30 pm on Sunday amid heavy rain. A car and two bikes passing over bridge at the time fell into the water. The 40-year-old bridge had been built by the PWD.
The deceased, Vijay Chavan, was riding one of the two bikes that fell in, said Ravindra Sanap, tehsildar of Murud. The deceased lived at Ekdara village and was a horse-handler at Kashid beach, said Rohan Khopkar, a local.
Four people in the car and two on the second bike who were rescued from the water were injured and taken to hospital. One bike was pulled out by late evening. Traffic was diverted, said Rahul More, executive engineer of PWD.
