Summary by Ground News

At least 177 survivors were pulled from the river and teams from the army, navy and air force were looking for others still missing. The 19th-century, colonial-era pedestrian bridge over the Machchu river in the state's Morbi district collapsed because it could not handle the weight of the large crowd.
