A bridge collapse in Bijonbari, India, has resulted in 32 deaths and 132 injuries. People had crowded onto the bridge to listen to speeches during a political event.

From the article:
Quote
The army, fire brigade and police helped residents in the rescue effort.

Up to 60 people were rescued on Saturday night, but the search on Sunday was mainly focused on areas down river, reports say.

Lord Jesus Christ have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Lord, have mercy. Memory eternal.
