A YouTube account belonging purportedly to Stuart Grant, who according to the FIU website is the school's planning coordinator, published a video showing what the walkway at the top of the FIU pedestrian bridge looked like days before it collapsed onto Southwest Eighth Street in Miami on March 15, 2018.
Juan Andres Diez and Zachary Lendzian, both students at Florida International University, returned to school Monday and honored the victims from the bridge collapse with a moment of silence near the school's Graham Center.
Students, professors and staff gathered near Graham Center at Florida International University on Monday to honor the victims of the bridge collapse by holding a moment of silence at 1:47 p.m. symbolizing the time when the accident took place.
Shortly before dawn on Saturday, rescue workers began freeing vehicles from under the collapsed concrete bridge at Florida International University, a milestone in the two-day, around-the-clock extraction effort. The second vehicle emerged around 7 a.m., almost entirely flattened.

FILE from March 10, 2018: Early morning view of the main span of the FIU-Sweetwater UniversityCity Pedestrian Bridge as it was lifted from its temporary supports, rotated 90 degrees across an eight-lane thoroughfare and lowered into its permanent position over SW 8 Street. The 174-foot, 950-ton section of the bridge was built adjacent to Southwest Eight Street using Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) methods, which are being advanced at FIU's Accelerated Bridge Construction University Transportation Center (ABC-UTC). The bridge was designed by FIGG Bridge Engineers and built by MCM. Barnhart Crane and Rigging operated the Self-Propelled Modular Transporters that placed the bridge on its permanent supports.
