A Bridge Too Arghhh

Kathryn Quinn

At least it was a clean death when this truck carrying two tons of sand collapsed a bridge in central China - right on top of a 73-year-old woman doing her laundry in the river underneath.

The bridge - linking a village and a school in Pingfeng, Anhui province - began to crumble as trucker Feng Hu got to to the middle.

Eye witness say Li Chen was buried under tons of rubble as the bridge collapsed on top of her.

"The truck driver was very lucky but she didn't stand a chance of getting away," said one eye witness.
