And I just survived …!
I came to half the bridge and I felt some tremors. At that time the bridge was moving, I ran towards the station saying that I turned upside down and looked back and there was a huge noise and the bridge collapsed.
As per daily routine, I was going to CSMT’s Nav Bharat Times office to write news on Thursday evening. It was seven times the normal time. After 26/11, we are beginning to call the Himalaya bridge as Kasab Pool. When I checked the message on the What’s app, I started moving towards the bridge. At that time, there were about 80 to 100 people on the bridge. I came to half the bridge and I felt some tremors. At that time the bridge was moving, I ran towards the station saying that I turned upside down and looked back and there was a huge noise and the bridge collapsed.
There is a bhelwala sitting on this bridge. I had reached that belt. From this bridge, people take the local side towards Harbor and Central and catch local people. It has a lot of evening traffic here too. On Thursday, the traffic was a bit downhill at the time of the bridge, but the crowd was crowded on the bridge. After the bridge falls, one light bullet fired. People started running away. Traffic on both sides stopped. The people could hear the voices from under Debris. I came down from the bridge on the harbor platform and came down the road. The road rushed towards the divider and ran to the injured. People had gathered until then. People started taking help with slabs. Some were stuck under the slab and debris. The pain was in pain. The blood was thyroid around. Some people were unconscious. Everyone was young, women, girls, senior citizens.
I also started helping the people stuck under Debraj An unidentified youth got water from a passenger. During this, he called the police’s main control room. This number was consistent. But once the police called the phone and I informed the police. Police and 10-12 police reached the spot after some time.
Some parts of this bridge collapsed on the taxi. This taxi driver luckily read. But not everyone was as fortunate as it was. A woman lost her stomach in front of a road divider, and a woman’s head was hit. Until then, two people were killed and 12 others were injured. When the ambulance reached there, the injured were sent to the hospital. After seeing all this, there was full awareness of reality. If I’m two steps ahead of time, I’m stunned to know that I am a victim of this accident.
