A rush-hour stampede at a rail station in Mumbai killed 22 people and injured dozens more, Indian officials said Friday. Overcrowding and a sudden rain sparked the stampede on a covered footbridge leading into the station, where some passengers sought shelter from the rain at the same time as a rush of passengers tried to leave. The footbridge serves passengers on two main rail lines at Elphinstone station and adjoining Parel station. "Everybody tried to leave at once and it appeared one of them slipped and fell, triggering the stampede," railway spokesman Anil Saxena said.
