In recent days the Bihar region in India has been experiencing terrible floods. The death toll has reportedly risen to 253. This crazy video of residents of the region playing chicken with a collapsing bridge may partly explain why.

These folks are like the Americans who still assume they can drive through a flooded river safely. It seems people doing dangerous things in the face of natural disasters human nature regardless of country.
