Indonesia Bridge-Collapse Death Toll Reaches 10; 28 Missing

The death toll from a bridge collapse in central Indonesia’s East Kalimantan province rose to 10 as rescuers searched for 28 others still missing, the National Agency for Disaster Management said.

The 710-meter (2,330 feet) bridge spanning the Mahakam River collapsed Nov. 26 at 4:20 p.m. local time, sending cars and other vehicles into the muddy, 40-meter-deep water below, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, head of the disaster agency’s data and information center, said by mobile-phone text message. The incident left 39 others injured, he said.

A support cable broke as workers were performing maintenance on the 10-year-old bridge, and others snapped soon after, Nugroho said. The Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology is investigating the cause of the collapse, he said.

The Public Works Ministry and East Kalimantan’s government are working with the disaster agency to build an emergency port near the bridge to accommodate ferry operations, Nugroho said.
