Chinese bridge collapses

EDITORS NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Three people were killed and five more injured as a newly-built bridge in north-eastern China collapsed. The accident occurred when a 100-metre(328 feet) section of the Yangmingtan bridge in Harbin city collapsed, sending four trucks falling 30 metres to the ground. The state media said the 15.4 kilometre-long (9.6 mile), eight-lane bridge opened to traffic in November 2011. It was designed to handle 9,800 vehicles per hour. China has experienced a number of construction accidents in recent years as the government rolls out giant infrastructure projects at breakneck speed.
