    This is surely similar to (but different from) the recent news - aussie chopped in Fiji) - where the black box was lost by mechical robot claws during recovery.

    however the accent in this one " Ohh No F***ing bitch!!" is clearly American -
    terrible crash either way. :(

    A man threatened to commit suicide by jumping from a Chinese bridge was approached by a passer-by who shoved him over the edge, local media say.

    Lai Jianshang, 66, said he was fed up with the desperate mans "selfish activity" which caused huge traffic jams in Guangzhou, southern China.

    Chen Fuchao fell 8 meters on to an air cushion and is recovering in hospital, the official Xinhua news agence said.

    Xinhua said Mr Lai was "taken away by police", but gave no further details.

    Interesting to see the domino effect that caused it to completely collapse, rather than just a section. Each support structure buckled in the same way. It V shaped at the centre as it fell, just enough that the join point of the V was able to reach and hit the next support structure to its left, causing that to buckle in exactly the same way. This continued until the bridge fully collapsed.
