EXTON, Pa. (CBS/AP) — The company that built the pedestrian bridge that collapsed in Florida has ties to Chester County.

The bridge was constructed by FIGG Bridge Engineers. It’s based in Tallahassee, but has an office in Exton, Chester County.

FIGG officials in South Florida say they are “stunned” by the collapse there.

In a statement, they say “our deepest sympathies are with all those affected by this accident. We will fully cooperate with every appropriate authority in reviewing what happened and why. In our 40-year history, nothing like this has ever happened before.”

Authorities say six people died and 10 others were injured after the pedestrian bridge, which was installed Saturday, collapsed at Florida International University in the Miami area.

The $14.2 million bridge crossed over a busy seven-lane highway that divided the university’s campus from Sweetwater. The 950-ton, 174-foot span was assembled by the side of the road and installed on Saturday to great fanfare.

The “accelerated bridge construction” method was supposed to reduce risks to workers and pedestrians and minimize traffic disruption, the university said.

“FIU is about building bridges and student safety. This project accomplishes our mission beautifully,” FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg said in the statement Saturday.
