3:53 am
like right now cleo is it is it still one of shock that this happened to toll or you know looking back there were safety fears about the bridge were there and i think i believe there was work being done you know as this happened. there is a still a shock there is a make sure of it some people are still trying to understand how is it was it possible to a bridge to collapse in this way and the other people are still in shock because there are still rescue. people rescued yeah i think is merely a shock at the moment and then tomorrow or the next few days will think about how to restore the bridge and who is the guilty for it what about the community and elmo have have they been able to pitch in and help as the rescue you know takes place. yeah yeah general also
3:54 am
