Rescuers from the State Disaster Response Force and other workers recovered 45 bodies after a bus veered off a bridge and fell into a canal in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday. District Magistrate Ravindra Kumar Choudhary says six people were rescued.
NEW DELHI (AP) — A special flight carrying evacuees to India who had been stranded abroad because of the coronavirus skidded off a runway and split in two while landing Friday in heavy rain in the southern state of Kerala, killing at least 16 passengers and injuring 123 more, police said.
Abdul Karim, a senior Kerala state police officer, said the dead included one of the pilots of the Air India Express flight. He said at least 15 of the injured were in critical condition, and that rescue operations were over.
The two-year-old Boeing 737-800 flew from Dubai to Kozhikode, also called Calicut, in Kerala, India’s southernmost state, the airline said.
A similar tragedy to Friday’s was narrowly avoided at the same airport a year ago, when an Air India Express flight suffered a tail strike upon landing. None of the 180 passengers of that flight were injured.
Kozhikode’s 2,850-meter (9,350-foot) runway is on a flat hilltop with deep gorges on either side ending in a 34-meter (112-foot) drop.

But one social media influencer demonstrated her commitment to the ‘gram by risking her life.

You hold the strength of an elephant within yourself. This means it’s up to you to make good or bad decisions too… it’s up to you to decide weather you will be visiting an ethical place or not to see these beautiful creatures ? all good things are wild and free ♥️ Have you ever seen an elephant before? If yes, where? In a sanctuary, orphanage, National park or zoo?

A passenger arriving in India from Thailand has been detained at the airport after customs officers found a month-old leopard cub in his luggage.
Customs officers at Chennai airport were alerted when they heard noises coming from his bag, which was found to contain the 2.2lb (1kg) cub hidden in a plastic grocery basket.
Authorities are investigating whether the suspect is part of an international smuggling ring. The 45-year-old detained in the investigation is said to have been “evasive in his replies” when questioned about his luggage by customs officers.
The bronze Statue of Unity pays tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a leader of the Indian independence movement who helped the country take control from the British.
The statue is almost twice the height of the Statue of Liberty, which, including the pedestal, reaches to 305 feet (182 metres).
Today is a day that will be remembered in the history of India.
