At least 27 have died and many more are injured after two trains veered off a flooded bridge in central India, local authorities said.

The two trains were traveling just minutes apart on the same bridge when both derailed off the track in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, railway officials say.

CNN reports that the two crowded trains had as many as 1,600 people on board.
