Relatives, survivors take bits of collapsed I-35W bridge
Lori Stanoch, of Medford, lost her brother in the 2007 accident in Minneapolis. Stanoch was among nearly two dozen families who saved pieces of the rusted and bent steel from the collapsed bridge Wednesday. Stanoch says she wanted something to reminder her that sometimes events are beyond our control. Her family plans to turn the metal into a bench in her brother's honor.
Rob Bailey was a construction worker repairing the bridge the day it gave way. He lost a co-worker. Bailey tells KARE-TV (http://bit.ly/1cjJpwi ) he found the part of the bridge he was working on and saved it as a reminder of his miraculous survival.
