About 20 boats with almost 160 personnel of Coast Guard, NDRF, and Navy, apart from local fishermen and rafters, are at the work to find the remains of the two buses and other vehicles, which are also suspected to have been swept away.

"Twenty two people from two buses are missing after the 50-feet (15-metre long) bridge collapsed", Sanjay Patil, police superintendent of Raigad district where the accident occurred, told AFP.

The primary reason seems to be the high pressure caused by the flooding of the Savitri river following heavy rains in the catchment of Mahabaleshwar, he said. The bridge is constructed before 70 years approximately.

There were two bridges on the Highway the bridge that goes from Mumbai To Gao and the other one that goes from Goa to Mumbai.

No survivors or bodies have been recovered despite a gruelling 14-hour search and rescue operation yesterday. A Chetak helicopter, a Seaking 42C all-weather aircraft, a Seaking 42B helicopter, and an Mi-17 chopper are being used to trace the missing.
