How’s this for an awkward moment, an official opening from nightmares when plans quite literally fell through
As suited officials were to cut the ribbon to inaugurate a bridge in the Democratic Republic of Congo… the worst happened.
The bridge collapsed causing chaos and outrage
Congo officials gathered to formally open the footbridge, built to help residents cross a river during the wet months
Ironic, because the previous makeshift bridge would frequently break.
However, as the ribbon was ready to be cut with scissors – it collapsed
African politicians have a reputation for throwing some of the most bizarre opening ceremonies, that seem to go viral in videos like this.
Alec Baldwin reaches settlement with family of ‘Rust’ victim
Alec Baldwin recaches settlement with family of ‘Rust’ victim, one year on from the tragic incident
Alec Baldwin has reached a settlement with the family of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who he fatally shot while shooting the film ‘Rust’.
Hutchins’ husband, Matthew agreed that his wife’s death was a “terrible accident” and isn’t interested in “attributing blame.”
As part of the deal, he will become the executive producer for the film.
Rust will recommence filming again in January, with Matthew saying he is determined to honour his late wife’s work.
Following the settlement, Baldwin’s lawyer took to Instagram saying “we are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation.”
“Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son,” the post added.
Other finer details of the settlement are yet to be disclosed, as they await court approval.
The final police report on the shooting is expected later this month. At this time, prosecutors will decide whether criminal charges are warranted.
District attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies said “if the facts and evidence warrant criminal charges”, then “charges will be brought.”
No one is above the law,” a statement issued on behalf of Carmack-Altwies added.

Prince William has given his first public speech since the death of the Queen and as heir to the British throne
Speaking at a wildlife protection summit in London, William called for more action to combat the illegal trade in wildlife products.
He says the illegal trade is worth an estimated $20 billion annually, and he urged businesses and law enforcement agencies to do more to stop it.
The speech signals the royal family will continue to champion environmental causes, as King Charles III is forced to step back from public activism.
The Prince and his Royal Foundation have long made protecting wildlife a key focus of their work, and they are likely to continue this work in the years to come.
Meanwhile, William also used the opportunity to pay tribute to his late Granny.
