The collapse of the US 950-ton pedestrian bridge has caused 10 deaths.
A new 1,500-ton pedestrian footbridge in Miami, Florida, suddenly collapsed on the afternoon of March 15, local time. At least 8 vehicles passing through were deformed, and a large number of injured people were trapped, killing 10 people.
A number of fire and ambulances were on the scene and search and rescue operations were still in progress.
Some engineers said that the cause of the accident is still to be investigated, but the construction method of the flyover is too dangerous to be an fact. Another student pointed out that the flyover was completed in a short time and had doubts about its safety.
Miami Police Chief Juan Perez confirmed that someone died in the incident but did not disclose the figures. He said that it is imperative to save people as soon as possible.
The Florida International University (FIU) near the scene of the incident issued a statement expressing shock and sorrow over the incident, referring to the school and rescuers on the scene.
The 52-meter-long footbridge of the treaty connects the 8th and 10th avenues of Southwest China and was completed on March 10th. It was originally scheduled to be opened in 2019, mainly to allow nearby Florida International University students to more easily cross the busy Highway. It is reported that the students have not started classes after entering the spring holiday.
Robert Bea, a professor of engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, said developers use the "fast erection installation" method to pre-assemble pre-fabricated components before the central support tower is built. He said that a new attempt on a highway "is entirely gambling."
Cristina Rodriguez, a 23-year-old female student who drove through the incident on weekdays, said that the news of the collapse of the bridge was not unexpected: "The bridge is getting too fast, and every method is believed to be able to bear the weight. ”
