A bridge collapsed near the Greek port of Patras on Tuesday, killing at least one person and injuring eight others. The bridge was on the route connecting the port of Patras with the capital Athens.

The chairman of the earthquake protection organization OASP, Efthymios Lekkas, told the television channel ERT that there were problems with the stability of the bridge, which the authorities were aware of. At the time of the accident, there were two heavy pieces of equipment on the bridge, including a large crane. It was initially unclear how the collapse happened.

The fire brigade said that they were still searching for other people who may be under the rubble. The cause of the collapse is under investigation.

The collapse of the bridge is a major tragedy, and our thoughts are with the victims and their families. We hope that the rescue efforts are successful and that no more lives are lost.

The Rio–Antirrio Bridge (Greek: Γέφυρα Ρίου–Αντιρρίου, Gefyra Riou–Antirrio), officially the Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge, is a multi-span cable-stayed bridge that crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras, Greece. It was opened on 7 August 2004, one day before the Athens 2004 Summer Olympics, and was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world until the completion of the Sutong Bridge in China in 2008.
