After heavy rains, deadly rock falls in the Indian Himalayas killing 9 people, 8 of them in a tourist minibus
The accident occurred this Sunday, July 25 in the district of Kinnaur, in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, in the Himalayas. As a result of the heavy rains of the previous weeks, huge boulders broke off the mountain and rolled down the slope in several places, causing extensive damage. 9 people visiting the area were killed, 8 of them by a stone that fell on their tourist minibus. Three other people were injured.
Many cars were crushed and a bridge cut in half in what looked like a bombing raid. Significant aid was sent there.
