Social media videos show aftermath of deadly bridge collapse

Eight vehicles were trapped in the wreckage of the 950-ton bridge and eight people have been transported to hospitals, officials told a news conference.

Emergency personnel with sniffer dogs searched for signs of life amid the wreckage of concrete, twisted metal and that rained from the collapsed structure and crushed vehicles on one of the busiest roads in South Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol previously said several people were killed but did not release a figure on fatalities.

At one point, police had requested television helicopters to leave the area so rescuers could hear any sounds of people crying for help from beneath the collapsed structure, the Miami TV station said.
