Mumbai's Prabhadevi Railway Station Stampede Kills 15, Injures More Than 20
A screen grab of the foot over bridge where a stampede occurred Friday morning.

Mumbai: At least 15 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in a stampede at Mumbai’s Prabhadevi Railway Station on Friday morning, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.

The stampede occurred at 10:46 am along the narrow footover bridge leading to the exit of the station on the western railway of the Mumbai local train services.

Television footage from the spot showed people trying to climb over the railings on the stairway to escape the stampede. Sources said heavy rains led to the chaos and the stampede on the foot overbridge linking Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban stations in Mumbai took place at 10.46 am.

Minister for Railways Piyush Goyal is landing in Mumbai this afternoon, and he is likely to visit the spot.

Prabhadevi - earlier Elphinstone Road- Station is located in the heart of central Mumbai, within walking distance of many corporate and blue collar workplaces.

To the west of the station is the tony Worli district, home to some of the most expensive commercial and housing real estate. To its east lie the former textile mill heartlands of Lalbaug and Bhoiwada. The mills have been converted to super luxury malls.
