BN: Mississippi Bridge 35W Collapsed Into River

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, a freeway bridge crossing the Mississippi River collapsed into the river at rush hour, about 6 pm their time. There are people in the river, rescue workers everywhere, and the bridge has totally collapsed into the river. Tons of concrete fell as the bridge was collapsing. There was school bus about to get on the bridge, but fortunately was spared. They did not get on the bridge. Thank God for huge favors.

They have set up rescue and medics. They are still pulling people out of the river. There are some deaths, but no one is sure of how many injuries and deaths have occurred. CNN is claiming one fatality, but an eye witness believes there are more than that.

Everyone, you know what to do, but I'm going to nudge you anyway. PRAY.

Update: CNN is now claiming 3 dead. I am going to keep in reserve my feelings about a possible terror attack. I don't know, but then again, neither do you. It could be...

Update 2: Get off the bridge! They fear the 4th section of the bridge is about to collapse. This may be the center section which is still above the water.
