No one injured after the collapse of part of the pedestrian bridge at the eastern end


No one was injured after the collapse of part of a footbridge in the neighborhood of Crescent Town in Toronto early Saturday, police and firefighters say.

Concrete from the underside of the Massey Square bridge fell to the ground, according to David Eckerman, a spokesman for Toronto Fire Services.

The bridge, near Victoria Park Boulevard south of Danforth Avenue, is a corridor at the Crescent Town Primary School. It rises five meters above the ground.

Emergency crews received a call for the collapse at 6:22 am

Access to the bridge is now limited

The concrete landed on the street of a condo building, said Eckerman.

Firefighters put a caution tape around the bridge and the area below it to restrict access.

"We made the area safe," he said.

Firefighters informed the police, the city and the Toronto School Board about the collapse.
