Bridge Collapse at Botanical Garden Kills 1

Bridge Collapse at Botanical Garden Kills 1:

ATLANTA (Dec. 19) - A soaring walkway being built to give visitors breathtaking views of the Atlanta Botanical Garden turned into a disaster zone when it suddenly collapsed, sending workers plummeting dozens of feet to the forest below. One worker was killed Friday morning and at least 18 others injured, some critically.

Contractors were pouring concrete on the 'canopy walk,' which climbed as high as 40 feet, when it gave way. Witnesses described a frenzied scene of the pathway shedding dozens of workers as it tumbled to the ground."
