Video of an arch bridge collapsing into a bay in eastern Taiwan has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. At least 14 people are believed to have been trapped as the bridge along with the oil tanker descended onto the fishing boats down.
A nearby CCTV camera caught dramatic footage of the bridge slowly giving in. It’s horrible if you even try to image the extent of the damage, but at the same time, it’s worth a second look, a third look for it’s natural, not a movie shot.

The bridge was completed in 1998 as many on social media are cracking the made-in-china joke, implying that China-made things are made to easily fail in.
