Click here to take a look at what readers thought were the 10 scariest bridges in the world.
At Number 10 was “Galloping Gertie.” She collapsed 4 months after construction finished. All it took was a 40 MH wind.
No human life was lost in the collapse of the bridge. Tubby, a black male cocker spaniel, was the only fatality of the Tacoma Narrows
Bridge disaster; he was lost along with Coatsworth’s car. Professor Farquharson and a news photographer attempted to rescue Tubby during a lull, but the dog was too terrified to leave the car and bit one of the rescuers. Tubby died when the bridge fell, and neither his body nor the car were ever recovered. Coatsworth had been driving Tubby back to his daughter, who owned the dog. Coatsworth received US $450 for his car and $364.40 in reimbursement for the contents of his car, including Tubby.
