You can see the terror in these pictures taken by an amatuer photographer....who captured the chaos. Emily Priddy was among the more than 100 people injured in the collapse. Emily Priddy, Victim "Happened suddenly, scared of getting hurt or dying..."
The job now is trying to figure out what went wrong... why a walkway just five years old SUDDENLY gave way. Authorities say so far they have found corroded cables in the debris... much like what you would find in a structure closer to a half century old.
