Rescuers dug through large chunks of debris from an under-construction overpass that collapsed in Kolkata Thursday, killing at least 18 people and injuring scores of others.

Television images showed the bloody legs of some of trapped people jutting out of the collapsed girders and concrete slabs. Some trying to flee the spot were also trapped.

A bloody hand from under a girder gestured for help as people handed water bottles to survivors pinned underneath the debris.
