Here’s what it took to free a truck that had broken through the deck of a bridge in England:

  • 7 days
  • 50 workers
  • 2 cranes
  • 2 other trucks and trailers

This 32-ton “Jet Vac Lorry” broke through a bridge over the River Meon and it took a massive effort of people and equipment to extract it. To add insult to injury, the last part of the rescue effort took place in heavy wind and rain.
