Rescuers work on collapsed bridge

Eight police officers on their way to a celebration marking National Police Day became heroes Friday in Seoul, South Korea, when their van was crossing the Songu bridge, above. The bridge collapsed, throwing their van onto a segment below. From there, they dove into the river to look for survivors and wrapped their clothes around injured victims. The officers were credited with keeping the toll from rising beyond 32 dead and 17 injured.
