MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Six years ago, a bridge collapsed and our lives changed.

The 35W bridge fell into the Mississippi River on this day in 2007. Thirteen people died, and another 145 were hurt when the eight-lane bridge collapsed during the evening rush hour.

On Thursday, some of the survivors gathered to watch a documentary about the aftermath of the bridge collapse.

A movie debuted on the second anniversary of the collapse, and it has become a way to mark the anniversary for some of those involved.

People who were strangers before the tragedy have become close friends.

“I was on the bridge, here on business, and I make at least one trip a year now,” said Omar Abuabara of Dallas, Texas, who appears in the film.
