A picture is going viral on social media platforms that claims metro line collapsed near Phoenix Mall in Mumbai’s Lower Parel. The image of the bridge that is going viral claims that the bridge collapsed in Mumbai on Tuesday.
However, the picture which is circulated in the name of being from Mumbai belongs to Gurugram, Haryana.
Here’s the viral image:

The photo is not of Mumbai but of an under-construction flyover that collapsed in Gurugram’s Sohna Road in Haryana on August 22.
The original photo is a part of an under-construction flyover collapsed in Sohna Road on late on Saturday night (August 22). Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala said that two people suffered injuries and both were admitted to the hospital. When the incident took place, no construction was going on, reports said.
Fake news are circulated on social media from time to time. Similar incidents have been reported from across the country where people fall a prey to such misinformation. The government has time and again urged people not to believe in such rumours.
The viral claim is fake as the picture is not from Mumbai but it belongs to under-construction flyover collapse in Sohna Road, Gurugram.
