A brand new footbridge in Congo collapsed Monday as officers have been celebrating its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Footage of the scary second, verified by Reuters, reveals a handful of officers falling down with the shaky construction in Kinshasa’s Mont-Ngafula district as onlookers shout.
No person was reported to have been harm within the incident.

When the construction gave out, the girl who minimize the ribbon was seen clutching a person in a go well with who had been holding the ribbon for her. Two different males instantly rushed to her help to hold her to security.
Each handrails broke off because the bridge cracked at its middle, coming to a relaxation within the shallow stream a number of ft under the place it had been suspended simply moments earlier than.
One of many final to depart the damaged bridge was a person wearing army fatigues, a darkish hat and darkish glasses clutching an unopened bottle of champagne.
