At least 4 dead and nine injured in collapse of Florida pedestrian bridge

MIAMI — Florida officials said Thursday that four people have been found dead in the rubble of a collapsed South Florida pedestrian bridge where the frantic search for any survivors continued past nightfall.

Fire Chief Dave Downey said at an evening news briefing that four deceased people were found amid the chaotic scene of concrete rubble and crumpled vehicles. He said nine victims were removed “early on” and taken to hospitals but didn’t elaborate on their conditions. He said the “search and rescue mode” — deploying trained canines, search cameras and sensitive listening devices — was continuing into the night.
