MIAMI (AP) -- Florida International University plans to hold a moment of silence to mark the one-year anniversary of the collapse of a pedestrian bridge that killed six people.
In a tweet, school officials said they plan to livestream the ceremony honoring the victims at 1:47 p.m. Friday for those who can't attend in person.
Join us this Friday to honor the victims of the Southwest 8th Street pedestrian bridge accident. We will be live-streaming at https://t.co/V6RUACHpAS and on facebook for those who cannot attend in person. https://t.co/oMMZCmpmgA— FIU (@FIU) March 12, 2019
The collapse crushed cars below the bridge on Southwest 8th Street.
The construction company that built the bridge has filed for bankruptcy. Magnum Construction Management LLC -- also known as MCM -- is being sued for wrongful death.
