4 dead in Ayutthaya bridge collapse

A suspension bridge over Pa Sak River in Ayutthaya collapsed yesterday evening, crushing four people to death underneath a pillar on one side, while wounding 15 others.

The collapse also sent a large number of pedestrians and motorcyclists into the water, but there were no casualties. The Bicentenary Bridge, 20 metres above the water, has been regularly used. The bridge is believed to have collapsed after the slings broke.
