I've also read it and latest updates I've seen is that there are now possibly 22 dead and the emergency services expect more.

He's going to have nightmares about that the rest of his life. But at least he'll have the rest of his life.

Reminds me of the narrows bridge in Washington that went down a while back during a big storm.

Technically, everyone still has the rest of their lives... some just aren't as long as others. It would be hard to continue being a truck driver after something like that though.

This seems similar to the pedestrian bridge in Florida recently. The article I read said they were doing construction to "true-up" the foundation when the bridge collapsed.
