In India, about 20 Adventist students and two Walla Walla university missionaries were injured when a suspension bridge collapsed March 18.
About 70 people were on the bridge even though it can only support 30 people, reported several Indian news agencies.
Among those injured were a nursing graduate and a current nursing student from Walla Walla University. They have been in India as part of Walla Walla University's India Immunizations spring break mission trip.
The two missionaries were hospitalized along with about 20 students from Riverside Adventist Academy in Meghalaya, India.
The majority of the injured students were 10th graders on their way home from school, according to the India Immunizations Facebook page.
India Immunizations is a project by Walla Walla University where a team of students, faculty and medical staff go to India during spring break to provide vaccinations, conduct health classes and Vacation Bible School meetings.
The Walla Walla University group "will be staying in India for the remainder of the trip to complete their work," said Rosa Jimenez, Director of University Relations at Walla Walla University.
The India Immunizations page said the people were blessed that it was not yet the rainy season, or else the river would have been moving much faster. The page also mentioned that the bridge fell at a time when there were many medical professionals nearby.
