MIAMI (AP) - Students returning from spring break to Florida International University will hold a moment of silence to honor the six people killed in the collapse of a pedestrian bridge that was supposed to be a campus showcase.
The Miami university will hold this ceremony at 1:47 p.m. Monday, the same time the bridge fell on Thursday, as the first step in healing the community.
Also Monday, lawyers in Orlando plan to announce the filing of the first lawsuit over the bridge collapse, which crushed cars under tons of concrete.
I will be filing the first civil lawsuit related to the #FIUBridgeCollapse tomorrow morning. It is imperative we act quickly to secure critical documentation & data. Thoughts & prayers to all the families impacted by this tragedy. #FIUbridge— Matt Morgan (@MattMorganESQ) March 18, 2018
Officials said 8th Street remains closed as an investigation into the collapse continues.
A vigil for the victims also is planned for Wednesday.
