LINGAYEN, Pangasinan — Four workers were hurt when an old bridge being demolished here collapsed on Tuesday (Feb. 21).
Vivencio Conise, 57; Kenneth Castro, 21; Roberto Llanillo, 38; and Bartolome Aqui, 48, were dismantling the steel trusses of the old San Jose Bridge when it fell apart. The bridge spans the Basing River in Barangay Baay here, and is being torn down because a new bridge has been constructed there.

The victims were taken to the Lingayen District Hospital for treatment. SFM
