Death toll raises to 36 in Italy bridge collapsed as Search for bodies continues

The death toll has raised to 36 as the rescuers work throughout the night to account for all of the victims of Tuesday’s Morandi Bridge disaster in Genoa.

According to the report, 36 people died when the section of the bridge of the motorway in Italy’s northwest partially collapsed during a heavy storm. The collapse of a section of the structure early Tuesday morning sent concrete tumbling toward the ground, overturning cars and trapping people in the rubble.

It was reveal that the collapsed bridge was built in late 1960s. The Rescuers are doing everything possible to search if there still lives under the collapsed bridge.

Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella said rescue efforts must be followed by a “serious and severe examination of the causes of what happened.”
