3 Musicians Crushed in Bolivian Carnival Parade

             In LA PAZ, Bolivia on March 2, 2014 a macabre accident happened at the Bolivian Carnival Parade. A group of musicians was marching in the opening under a bridge that collapsed on them. Three musicians and sixty more other people was injured after the incident. Dozens were on the bridge when it collapsed. This march became a funeral march of the three musicians that died. This event is very popular in Bolivia, that draws twenty-thousand musicians and ten thousand more tourist to the four-day annual event.

My Reaction:
            My instant reaction to this terrifying event was that how can the family members of the lost ones can get over such a thing. I know it'll take a long time to get over something like this. It's a good thing that only three out of twenty-thousand musicians died and not hundreds died. I just wish nobody would of died in an accident like this and the parade went as planned the first time. Hopefully the new bridge that they're building is stronger and more stable, so no one is getting collapsed on in the future.

  2. Nobody should ever forget what happened to those musicians. The Families of those marchers are probably are having the hardest time trying to deal with this.

  3. I would not be able to live if my family died on that bridge. But they are lucky how only three people died and not a lot more. Now every time I go across a bridge i am going to think about that and pray it won't fall.

  4. It is so sad the things that happen at happy events. I feel terrible for everyone that was involved.
