Italian bridge has been demolished one year after incident

Jun 28, 2019
The Italian Morandi bridge has been demolished one year after its collapse left many casualties. During August of 2018, the city of Genoa was hit by heavy rainfall that made a section of the bridge collapse and destroyed one of its three main supporter towers, killing around 43 people and injuring dozens more. Now, demolition experts have been ordered to bring the bridge down a year after the tragedy. To avoid any further casualties or accidents, 3,500 civilians who live nearby were evacuated, and it's expected that they will be able to return to their homes once authorities have cleared the area.
