Suspended Bridge Collapses In New Zealand, Taking Hikers With It


Recently, a small group of hikers decided to trek across New Zealand, thinking they were having the time of their lives. Unfortunately, disaster struck quickly, as Adrien Whistle and his pals, who had already hiked for miles at this point, attempted to cross a bridge near Lake Waikaraemoana, which is on New Zealand’s North Island.

This bridge, which was nothing more than a suspended piece of construction, ultimately collapsed under the weight of the group of hikers. The bridge gave way, resulting in the hikers falling down to the water below. Thankfully, they were all unharmed.

With well over four million views, people are living vicariously through Adrien and his buddies while they made this journey, no matter how devastating it turned out to be.
