A 25-foot section of a walkway collapsed at Silver Dollar City causing several people to plunge into water below. It happened inside a building where people were lined up to ride "The Lost River of the Ozarks," a water ride at the park. Injuries were minor.

Oh give it a break. If you're going to jump on a bandwagon, at least learn the songs first.
Some of you post the stupidest things regarding accidents and it does nothing but prove that the government does have to protect stupid people from themselves and others.

"A woman from Hensley, Arkansas underwent about 12 hours of surgery Tuesday. Mary Koon was one of 21 people injured, including her husband and 9 year old son. But her injuries apparently were the most severe, with broken bones in both legs and ankles"
I would hesitiate to term these injuries as "minor". Abrasions and cuts, yes. Multiple broken bones and several hours of surgery to fix them, no.
Jeff, Did you forget to feed the Raptor again? That Raptor is not in a good mood.
And another thing...when you post messages they are supposed to be about the subject...in this case the bridge falling down...not about some raptor that is fake you are so Immature not saying any names (Sawblade5) so stick to the subject ! I have been there hundreds of times so don't take the name of Silver Dollar City In Vein !!!
That bridge has been there ever since they put in the ride...so it is very old and you aren't supposed to expect manmade things to last forever do you ??? I thought so... But when I go again over the summer I'll see it and hope it doesn't collapse again but I'm not expecting it to fall down in the near future.
At least no-one was killed and I'm sure that S.D.C. won't let it happen again...
