Here's What Caused The Famous Golden Gate Bridge Arches To Flatten In 1987

The Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco is one example. Completed in 1937, Britannica reports,

it was the largest suspension bridge ever built. The U.S. is home to an array of can't-miss sights, too,

both those built by nature and those by talented engineers, architects, and laborers.

One day in 1987, the Golden Gate Bridge was so packed with people that it sank into the ground. A celebration was held in 1987 to

mark the bridge's half-centenary. Most unfortunately, though, all the footfall and hoopla of the day caused the bridge to start sinking.

On May 24, 1987, the Golden Gate Bridge 50th Anniversary Bridge Walk took place. A crowd of around 800,000 gathered, around 10

times as many as expected. Pedestrians were crammed together for the length of the structure, nobody was able to move.
