Video: Gap causes problems at John's Pass Bridge

11

July

Barricades and netting are up now, but before they were posted, two people recently fell through a 3-foot-wide, 100-foot-long gap that was part of the John's Pass Bridge design. And, as it turns out, a third person also fell last year and has now sued the company that designed the bridge. The 19-year-old from Miami had been jogging along a median in the bridge that looked like a sidewalk, when all of a suddent she disappeared. You can read about her ordeal in this story.

We also have this compelling video that shows the gap and how easily the median could be mistaken for a sidewalk running the bridge's length.
