Cars, bodies remain trapped in Florida bridge collapse; six dead

Base shows the collapsed pedestrian bridge at Florida International University in the Miami area on Thursday

This is after they were convinced that there were no more signs of life under the rubble of the Florida bridge, which collapsed Thursday.

A student, 18-year-old Alexa Duran, and a bridge worker, Navaro Brown, were identified on Friday as victims who died in the pedestrian bridge collapse at Florida International University.

To limit disruption to traffic, the 174-foot portion of the bridge was built using a method called Accelerated Bridge Construction before being driven into its position over the road using a rig.

Families of the victims are also encouraged to coordinate with the family reunification centers at the university and local hospitals for useful information about their loved ones.

Hopes of finding more survivors in the rubble of a collapsed footbridge in Florida are fading, with police saying the operation has shifted from rescue to recovery.

She lost the election because she alienated the very people she now insists on alienating even further. "You have to move on". The daily said that Clinton was supposed to be the feminist champion for the aspirations of all American women.

National Transportation Safety Board officials were on the scene on Friday to investigate.

At least six people were killed when the 174ft (53m) bridge near Florida International University in Miami fell on to a motorway on Thursday.

The main priority, Perez said Friday, was to get to the bodies police believe are trapped under collapsed concrete.

The pedestrian bridge was a collaboration between Miami-based MCM Construction and Figg Bridge Design, which is based in Tallahassee. That tower had not yet been installed, and it was unclear what builders were using as temporary supports.

"We will fully cooperate with every appropriate authority in reviewing what happened and why", the firm said in a statement. Reports indicate that there are six fatalities as a result of the collapse.

FIGG Bridge Group, an engineering company, was selected to build a replacement bridge in Minnesota after the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed about 11 years ago. Two workers were on the 950-ton bridge when it pancaked on top of vehicles waiting at a stoplight.

At one point, police requested television helicopters leave the area so rescuers could hear for any sounds of people crying for help from beneath the collapsed structure, CBS Miami television said.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, including those members of our own Bolton Perez & Associates family who were injured yesterday", it said.

Authorities say an innovative pedestrian bridge that failed at Florida International University had been put to a "stress test" and its cables were being tightened when it collapsed.

"MCM is a family business and we are all devastated and doing everything we can to assist", the company said in a statement on its website Thursday.

Did the Broncos land the right quarterback? The numbers tell a story
Free agent quarterback Case Keenum is expected to sign a deal with the Denver Broncos once free agency officially opens at 4 p.m. He missed seven games last season with an elbow injury and often played at the middle linebacker spot in the Bengals' scheme.

FIGG was fined in 2012 after a section of a bridge it was building in Virginia crashed onto railroad tracks and injured several workers, according to a story in The Virginian-Pilot. Other funding agencies include the Federal Highway Administration, Florida Department of Transportation Local Agency Program, FIU and the City of Sweetwater. "This project accomplishes our mission beautifully", Rosenberg said.
