18 Bridge collapse China
A section of a road bridge has plunged into a river in Heyuan, Guangdong Province southern China, sending two vehicles into the water and leaving two people missing. The six-arch traffic link, spanning across the Dongjiang River of Heyuan in Guangdong Province, measured 420 metres (1,377 feet). Around 120 metres (393 feet) of it collapsed early on Friday, said the city's authority. Floodwaters had been pounding on the bridge continuously and the impact could have weakened the structure, according to media.
