(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A rush hour stampede during a sudden monsoon downpour at a railway-station in India's financial hub of Mumbai killed at least 22 people and wounded more than 30, an Indian state official said on Friday (September 29). The cause of the stampede on a bridge at the city's central Elphinstone station during the rainstorm was being investigated, a police official at the accident site said. "Two of the injured are in serious condition," said Deepak Sawant, the health minister of the western state of Maharashtra surrounding Mumbai, who provided the estimate of casualties. The stampede took place after the cloudburst caught commuters off guard, prompting scores to scurry for cover under the roof of the station's pedestrian overbridge, said Akash Koteja, one of the injured.
