Several people were trapped in a train when a pedestrian bridge collapsed, crushing the railway coach underneath in eastern India on Saturday, railway officials said. The 150-year-old foot bridge at the Bhagalpur station, in the eastern state of Bihar, was in the process of being dismantled when it collapsed, eastern railways spokesman S. Majumdar told the CNN-IBN news channel. Several people were trapped inside and 14 have been rescued and taken to hospital, he said. Bhagalpur is some 150 kilometers east of Patna, the capital of Bihar.
