The devastating rains that have been wreaking havoc in Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu have already claimed the lives of at least 347 people and stranded thousands more.
A video has recently surfaced of the Avadi-Poonamalle bridge in Chennai collapsing as people from both sides stare in horror. The bridge broke down because of the corrosion caused to its foundation by the heavy rains.
Watch the video here:
Another video which shows the 20-year-old bridge from a different angle was first uploaded on December 2.
