Jamaican Killed After Florida Bridge Falls

A Caribbean national was listed among the dead following the collapse of a pedestrian bridge in South Florida last month.

Brown Navaro smlJamaican-born Navaro Brown, who worked for a company, which provides material for strengthening bridges, reportedly died when the structure connecting Florida International University to the Sweetwater community collapsed.

Brown, 37, worked for Structural Technologies at the time of his death.

Up to press time local authorities were still trying to determine why the bridge collapsed. However, United States Senator Marco Rubio, who represents Florida, explained on the social media site Twitter that cables on the bridge were being tightened by workers when it collapsed.
