As I used to take the bridge to walk to my school after arriving at CSMT station, I got here throughout them every day. My friends and I had conversations with them nearly every day, whilst passing through them. I also noticed them on the bridge on Thursday. I was extremely frightened about their condition… even though I were given to understand concerning the names of the deceased from TV information channels, I had no approach of realizing whether they have been amongst them. I was also involved concerning the tiny safe haven home for boulevard children next to the bridge known as SUPPORT. When I heqard concerning the cave in, I feared that it too will have got here underneath the falling debris. Today, I got here right here to hope for them. I was relieved to look the children’s safe haven intact, but underneath lock and key. I just hope that the entire children and the vendors are protected.”
