Tragedy in India: Billboard collapsed and crushed dozens of people

At least eight people were killed and more than 50 injured when a huge billboard collapsed during a storm in Mumbai, India. Gale-force winds caused the collapse of a metal sign, about 30 meters long, on top of a gas station in the suburb of Ghatkopar, in the eastern part of the Indian metropolis. According to indiatvnews.com, a search and rescue operation is underway at the site as authorities estimate that 20-30 people remain trapped in the debris. Videos broadcast by Indian television networks showed the metal sign swaying in the strong wind before collapsing and crushing buildings, vehicles and passers-by.
