24. Tuo River Bridge

Location: Fenghuang, China

Year of Fail: 2007

In 2007, this pedestrian and vehicle bridge crashed down during construction when the supportive frame of the 140-foot stone and cement structure was removed in order to work on another section. Untrained migrant workers; shoddy, cost-cutting materials; and the complete absence of steel reinforcement caused the Tuo River bridge to bury nearly 60 people, 36 of whom were killed.
