MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Fears that an interstate bridge collapse might produce dozens of deaths eased today as authorities said the number of missing, once thought to be as many as 30, was just eight.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities searching the rubble of an interstate bridge collapse lowered the number of people believed missing Friday to eight, a figure far lower than what had been feared since the catastrophe happened during rush-hour traffic.
The medical examiner's office was working to confirm the man's identity, but Rollwagen said firefighters didn't want the man's family to see the truck ablaze "over and over" on TV knowing he was inside.
Firefighters pulled the fifth victim, the driver of a tractor-trailer that was engulfed in flames in the collapse, from the wreckage late Thursday, fire department spokeswoman Kristi Rollwagen said.
