Video: Terrifying moment bridge snaps under weight of backpackers captured

A group of French backpackers were walking across what appeared at first to be a secure, sturdy suspension bridge in New Zealand when the bridge collapsed midway, sending them falling 30ft into the waters below.

Uploaded by Adrien Whistle who fell into the ravine, the cameraman also captures his friends Roland, Enzo and Effie – plummeting into the water.

The hikers were trekking the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk at the time.

Operations manager, Mike Slater told the New Zealand Herald: ‘As a result that has upset the stability of the bridge and that’s where people that were on the bridge have slipped off and fallen.’
