At least ‘two people killed and several trapped’ after bridge collapses in Greece

A tragic and devastating incident unfolded in western Greece, where a part of a bridge on a motorway collapsed, leading to the loss of at least two lives. The incident occurred in the city of Patras, near a Roma settlement in the Haradro area. Heartbreaking footage shared on social media has shown rescuers on-site, desperately trying to respond to the crisis and provide assistance.

According to reports from local media, a group of Roma individuals sought refuge from the scorching heat by taking shelter under the bridge. Tragically, the construction unexpectedly gave way, resulting in the structure collapsing on them. As a result, fears have arisen that numerous people might still be trapped beneath the heavy and unyielding slabs of concrete that came crashing down during the unfortunate event.

The fire brigade, upon confirming the bridge collapse, immediately swung into action. Their heroic efforts have been tireless as they work tirelessly at the scene. However, the precise number of people trapped remains uncertain at this point, adding to the anxiety and urgency of the rescue operation.

Rescue teams are confronting significant challenges in their efforts to search for survivors and extract those who may still be trapped. The situation has compelled authorities to call for additional support from neighboring regions, with resources and personnel being deployed from Athens to bolster the rescue mission.
