Could Two Pedestrian Bridges Collapse in Less Than a Day?

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), if during a re-inspection a safety issue is found that is substantially similar to one discovered during a previous inspection, then a repeat citation is issued and the employer at fault is subject to a fine of up to $70,000.
While it is not a repeat violation according to the above definition, it is still disturbing that less than 24 hours after a pedestrian bridge collapsed on the campus of Raleigh, North Carolina’s Wake Technical Community College, killing one worker and injuring four others, another pedestrian bridge collapsed due to similar issues.
Fortunately, while the first bridge collapse, which we previously covered in our blog, ended in tragedy, this second collapse resulted in no injuries or deaths.
