Florida Bridge Collapse Kills Six

The death toll from the collapse of a pedestrian bridge has risen to at least six, Miami police said on Friday as crews searched under the huge concrete slabs that fell on to a busy highway. The operation has shifted from rescue to body recovery, with engineers fearing the support structures at either end of the bridge could also come down, Miami-Dade police spokesman, Alvaro Zabaleta, told reporters, AFP reported.
"The entire bridge is in jeopardy," he said. The walkway, which connects Florida International University to a student housing area, went up less than a week ago but was not yet operational.
At least 10 people were taken to hospitals and two remained in critical condition, officials and local media reported. At least eight cars were trapped when the 950-ton bridge suddenly gave way on Thursday, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Division Chief Paul Estopinan said earlier.
