    The article about is says the failure was due to a connecting link in one of the cables. The investigation into the fault by DoC and Tuhoe found that the failure was due to a rare manufacturing defect in a link of the cable that snapped.

    The "quench crack" was found in laboratory analysis conducted at the University of Canterbury.

    They're lucky part of that bridge didn't fall on top of them!

    I hope everybody is all right. Having traversed over a few back country bridges I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.
