"As rescue operations continued Monday, with the Indian military deploying navy divers to look for bodies, scrutiny turned to the company tasked with renovating and operating the bridge. The contractor, Oreva, a large manufacturer known for producing clocks and electric bikes, wrapped up a six-month renovation of the bridge on Friday, to coincide with the Gujarati New Year. It reopened to tourists without first obtaining clearance from the government, city official Sandeepsinh Zala told the Indian Express.

Zala also criticized the bridge operators for selling as many tickets as they could without controlling the flow of people.

After a day of investigation, local police arrested nine people, including two Oreva executives, two contractors, three security guards and two ticket window clerks, said Yadav, the Gujarat police official."

I hope they arrest the government official who awarded a bridge restoration contract, to a damn clock maker!

I know how to swim, but I don’t know how to swim with 3-5 people grabbing and pulling me down.

Many of them did not know how to swim.

The one where you hear the pilot say,"those are drones". At the time the Navy was conducting exercises to test out a new Northrup Grumman targeting system.
