An absolute horror when looking at the pictures...thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's family and friends

Girlfriend's family is visiting others in Minneapolis - were about 15 minutes away from the bridge when it happened.

Just awful.

We never really took that way into Minneapolis. It's such a nightmare!

Just devastating. :(

I was reading an article before that they inspected the bridge two years ago and found some problems. Why didn't they do something about it? Man. This kind of disaster could've and should've been prevented.

My heart goes out to all those affected.
