Default Silver Bridge

On this date, December 15 in 1967 a terrible tragedy took place on the Ohio River at Pt. Pleasant, WV. The great SILVER BRIDGE collapsed into the river with 46 souls taken to their death. Take time to remember those lost, some were river people. One small link in a chain set the bridge down like dominos.

I crossed that bridge often and I know Dale Flick did also.

Forty-six years ago and Forty-six souls lost. Two were never recovered.
