August 7, 2007 - Some interesting info regarding the Minneapolis bridge collapse. I was watching BBC News24 at about 3am(GMT) this morning. Whilst covering the bridge collapse they had a witness on via telephone who spent a few minutes explaining how he walks under the bridge almost daily. He had witnessed the fact that large holes had been drilled/cut through the concrete supports. This angle was covered for an hour or so on the news and they had this same guy on again later - however, this time whilst he was re-telling the same story there was a weird buzzing/pulsing sound and he was cut off mid-talk.
It is now 10.30am GMT and BBC News24 are no longer reporting this guys story - not only that but they are reporting that all rescue efforts were stopped after a couple of hours and that the police have cordoned off the bridge - since when do rescue efforts stop when it gets dark, especially when there are supposed to be people in cars at the bottom of the river."
