Bridge Collapse in Florida
A pedestrian bridge in Miami collapsed at Florida International University. The bridge was initially installed last weekend and did not survive a “stress-test,” which caused it to collapse on construction workers, students and potentially more. This bridge wasn’t supposed to open until 2019. According to ABC News, one person died at a hospital, and Perez said five bodies were located with the help of cameras but not yet retrieved from vehicles crushed under the immense slab.
Emergency crews have been working around the clock to dig through the rubble in hopes to recover survivors. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims. This is an unfortunate and tragic accident and investigators are currently trying to determine the cause.
