Surveillance video shows the moment a large group of people crossing a pedestrian bridge  in China’s Jiangxi province is sent tumbling into the water, triggering a frantic rescue effort.

As people cross, the bridge folds beneath them, dumping dozens of people into the two-meter-deep water. Local authorities said that more than ten people were injured. The cause of the collapse is still under investigation.

That's not supposed to happen.  Probably caused by the Republican Party shutdown of the government. <s>

@eagle11772 No Eagle. This is caused by the unwillingness to spend appropriately on infrastructure.  The U.S is having similar issues with it's bridges.

@goodguygonebad There are any number of reasons why this bridge collapsed including, but not limited to: poor design, poor construction, faulty materials, faulty assembly, corruption, etc.
