Another Tragedy

This is just heartbreaking for me and surely for all the Hyderabadis out there. This accident happened this evening in Hyderabad.

According to media reports:
Over 30 people were feared killed and 20 injured after an under-construction flyover collapsed in Hyderabad's busy Panajagutta area on late Sunday evening. The flyover has been under construction for the past one year and it was to be inaugurated this December. 15-20 cars were trapped under the debris while rescue workers were trying to save the people stuck underneath. The other half of the flyover is barely standing at its place and may fall anytime soon, unless demolished.
I just don't know what to say. There are lot of things that people and the government of India have to ponder about. We just cannot allow this to happen all the time and we need to avoid accidents like this in the future.
