This is actually the second footbridge tragedy in France in recent months. Late last year a gangway collapsed at Chantiers d'Atlantique as family members of construction workers visited the newly completed ocean liner Queen Mary 2. A series of tragic incidents such as these helps to validate the cluster theory. This incident is truly unfortunate. Perhaps France should evaluate their building safety standards to ensure that no more footbridge accidents occur?

What a pity!!!
I was there yesterday morning arriving from HGK and this terminal is very stunning in the architecture!!!
Hope they will find soon the responsabilities but at the french radio, they say it should be a construction default!!!
ADP was on late in the construction and I remember that the terminal opened and was then closed for some days because of troubles in the structure!!
I hope it won't arm AF, not responsible at all in this case.
WgW2707 : The Chantiers de l'Atlantlique tragedy is absolutely different!The footbridge that collapsed was meant to stay for just some days, during the construction of the ship!!!
