Bridge Collapses Near Sheridan

Posted by wlpo on June 30, 2009

Six people were taken to the hospital yesterday after a footbridge collapsed at a Christian camp near Sheridan.

Serena Fire Chief Rodney Reese says 15 to 20 teens and adults walked on the bridge for a photo when the metal structured bridge collapsed into a creek bed. Reese says six people were taken to Morris and Ottawa hospitals for treatment.

The people fell about 10 feet according to Reese. He didn’t know what church they’re from but says some were out of Joliet.

The emergency call came in around 10 yesterday morning.
