Heads will roll for this, after the MDC garage collapse and now this!

The FIU pedestrian bridge across Southwest Eighth Street collapsed Thursday afternoon, trapping an unknown number of people and cars underneath.

The bridge was installed at Southwest 109th Avenue Saturday morning, intended eventually to provide pedestrian access across Tamiami Trail from FIU’s main campus to Sweetwater, where thousands of students live in off-campus housing or in FIU’s newer dorms.

Before Saturday’s installation, FIU said the method of overall installation significantly reduced the risk to workers, walkers, drivers and minimized traffic disruptions for construction.

It seems the bridge broke and collapsed right on the spot where some workers and a crane where doing something.
This video shows the exact moment the bridge fell.
Look at the top left where the crane and workers are on the roof of the bridge, its the spot that breaks first.
