Canadian bridge collapse turns into mass entertainment (VIDEO)

Canadian bridge collapse turns into mass entertainment (VIDEO)
The demolition of this bridge in Canada drove thousands of people to see the spectacle of 100-year-old structure collapse as if it were a Tetris block.

Thousands packed the nearby Broadway Bridge to watch the strangely satisfying explosion in the city of Saskatoon on January 10. The 100-year-old Traffic Bridge is to be destroyed to make way for a newer more simply designed bridge.

One man who didn’t enjoy the explosion was Andre Lalonde, who has built a replica of the Saskatoon Traffic Bridge out of lego.
