Cardinal of Mumbai “anguished” after train station stampede leaves 22 dead

Cardinal Oswald Gracias, the Archbishop of Bombay, said he was "anguished and deeply pained" after a stampede at a Mumbai train station left 22 people dead, and over 30 others seriously injured. Over 3,000 people die in accidents on the Mumbai rail network every year.
MUMBAI, INDIA - At least 22 people died during a Friday morning stampede at a train station in Mumbai, after a crowd surged on a narrow overpass. Thirty others were seriously injured in the incident.
Heavy rains caused more people than usual to be on the overpass between Elphinstone and Parel stations, and was probably a contributing factor when a few people slipped, aggravating the crowd surge.
