A Florida International University pedestrian bridge, still under construction, collapsed Thursday afternoon on a major roadway in the Miami area, trapping people underneath and injuring several victims. Miami-Dade Fire chief said four people were found dead at the site and nine people had been transported to area hospitals.
"We have multiple victims; the number hasn't been determined yet," Miami Dade County Deputy Mayor Maurice Kemp said at a late afternoon news conference.
