A victim of the stampede is rushed to hospital after a bamboo bridge collapsed during Chhat Puja on the banks of the Ganges River in Patna on November 19, 2012. At least 18 people were killed and more than a dozen injured in a stampede on Monday during a Hindu festival in the eastern Indian city of Patna, a senior police officer said. Kant said the stampede occurred when a makeshift bridge on the Ganges river gave way under the weight of Hindu devotees rushing to offer prayers to the setting sun as part of an annual Hindu religious ritual.
