UNILAD bridge111 634x426 WATCH: The Terrifying Moment A Suspension Bridge Collapses

As I grow older I am getting scared of heights. I don’t like overpasses with a busy highway underneath and I sure as hell don’t like suspension bridges in forests. This video is frightening stuff.

Four backpackers were trekking through Te Urewera National Park in New Zealand when a suspension bridge collapsed on them. They fell 8 metres into the river.

Footage of the moment shows all of the backpackers fly over the side of the bridge and then splash into the river below.

They had to hoist themselves up using a remaining cable to get back to safety. Here’s the video:

Luckily, everyone survived to tell the tale with only a few bruises and scratches.

New Zealand’s Department of Conservation is carrying out an investigation to see what caused the bridge to collapse.
