At least Ten people have been killed after a newly installed pedestrian bridge collapsed at Florida International University in Tamiami Trail, Maimi yesterday, Thursday.
Mail Online reports that the 174-foot ‘instant bridge’ which was built to provide pedestrian access from FIU’s main campus to an area that houses a number of student residences, was installed Saturday morning but was not due to open to the public until 2019.
Reports according to CBS Miami held that two workers were replacing something on the side of the $14million bridge when it collapsed.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also told local TV station CBS Miami that least six other injured people were taken away from the scene and eight vehicles were trapped in the bridge wreckage.
Bill added that one person was suffering from cardiac arrest.
Florida International University released a statement on Thursday, saying: ‘We are shocked and saddened about the tragic events unfolding at the FIU-Sweetwater pedestrian bridge’
