A motorway bridge has collapsed in the northwest Italian city of Genoa, killing at least 35 people as vehicles plummeted to the ground, emergency services say.
Dramatic video footage captured the moment of the disaster when one of the huge supporting towers crashed down during torrential rain.
Vehicles and debris fell 90m (295ft) on to rail tracks and a warehouse.
Rescuers are trying to free people caught in crushed vehicles or rubble.
Some 200 firefighters are working at the scene, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said.
Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli spoke of an "immense tragedy" and France offered Italy its support.
Looks horrendous. Eyewitnesses saying there were at least 8 or 9 vehicles on the collapsed section.
