Ponte cai em Taiwan sobre barcos de pesca

By Ninian Carter

October 1, 2019 - Uma ponte de aço em arco sobre uma baía no nordeste de Taiwan
colapsou sobre barcos de pesca ancorados no porto por baixo.

The 18-metre-high Nanfangao Bridge, a well known tourist attraction in the small fishing town of Suao, fell into the harbour at 9:30am (local time), on October 1, while a fuel truck was driving over it.

Amateur footage posted on social media shows a large truck almost getting across the bridge before tumbling backwards as the bridge crashes onto at least three fishing boats berthed beneath it.

More than 60 army and naval personnel are involved in the search for victims and survivors.
