    New Delhi, Sep 21: An under construction foot overbridge at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, one of the most important venues for the soon approaching Commonwealth Games 2010, collapsed on Tuesday, Sep 21.

    As per the latest inputs, 23 people have been injured in the mishap. The visuals of the bridge collapse near the stadium's parking lot have hit the media.
