The steel single-arch bridge located in a fishing port on Taiwan’s eastern coast collapsed on Tuesday morning. Footage shows the tanker trying, and failing by seconds, to reach the end of the bridge as the massive 140-meter construction falls down onto several fishing boats. The bridge had stood in the small Yilan County fishing village since 1988.
