At least 6 people are confirmed dead following a pedestrian bridge collapse in South Florida.
Crews have digging through the tons of metal steel in a frantic search for any remaining survivors after a recently-installed walkway on the campus of Florida International University fell to the ground Thursday, crushing vehicles across an eight-lane road. Rescue crews worked into the night, using dogs, search cameras and listening devices, desperately trying to find any survivors.Investigators say the collapse happened during some kind of ‘testing.’ the pedestrian bridge had only been in place for five days, and wasn’t even open yet. It was intended to be an easier, safer way for students to cross between buildings. FIU classes aren’t scheduled until Monday due to spring break open today, but campus will be open and offering counseling services.
