Bridge collapses killing 12 people in China

Video footage has captured the moment that the bridge crumbled into the high waters of a flooded river in south-west China.

The bridge reportedly had six vehicles on it when it was submerged. Three people were rescued from the water but 12 were killed.

Lin Rui survived, recalling the collapse he said: "I remember that at that time there were many people watching the flood on river bank. Then I felt the car shaking and saw cracks on road.

"The middle of the bridge was raised and then suddenly it fell way.

"It happened just in one or two seconds. And there was no time for me to respond".

Rescuers are continuing to search for some of the bodies of those killed.
