Postby CielOnTap on Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:27 pm

A footbridge that was not yet ready for use collapsed on traffic lanes and caused fatalities in Miami, Florida USA today.
t least one person has died as rescue teams search for victims among the rubble of a collapsed pedestrian bridge at Florida International University in Miami, officials said Thursday.
At least eight cars were crushed under the bridge and at least eight people were transported to hospitals for treatment, authorities said. The bridge's span was just installed Saturday, an effort to boost safety on a busy street where an FIU student was fatally struck by a vehicle last year.
