Stomach-churning footage has emerged of the moment an under-construction flyover bridge collapsed, causing utter carnage in the Indian city of Kolkata.

The shocking seven-second video taken near Girish Park in the north of the city shows a busy intersection jam-packed with motor-vehicles, rickshaws, street vendors and pedestrians totally oblivious to the major disaster about to befall them.

Suddenly, the mammoth structure drops, crashing to the ground as the camera darkens and fills with dust.
