Pedestrian Bridge Collapses in Moscow's Gorky Park, Injuring 13

Quote:
Thirteen people are reported injured after a pedestrian bridge crowded with revellers collapsed during New Year celebrations in Moscow's Gorky Park.

Three people were badly hurt, but Moscow's mayor's office said in a statement that there were "no serious injuries."

Video footage shows the moment the wooden bridge collapsed, sending dozens of people tumbling some three meters onto a skating rink below.

Medical teams arrived on the scene immediately and treated victims for "moderate and light" wounds.

Although I am not a structural engineer, nor do I play one on TV, but it seems to me - as a mere layman - that the use of steel might be in order here.

A linear above or below truss system is needed for something with that length in between columns.
