A bridge that refused to fall, falls

There are some jobs where it’s impossible to hide when you mess up. Blowing up bridges is one of them.

In Arkansas, demolition experts tried to blow up a a 93-year-old bridge yesterday morning,it being too old and all.

People lined the river banks. Kids were watching online broadcasts in school.

Then came the big moment.


The man in charge of bringing the bridge down said it probably could have stood for another 100 years.

It was brought down five hours later and the man had a good answer when he got home and was asked “how was your day?”
