Culture and a Bridge collapse in Vietnam

by

This article covering the tragic bridge collapse in Vietnam will be an interesting story to watch and contrast with the treatment/investigation of the I-35 bridge collapse in Minneapolis. Aside from the design and workmanship issues, I’ll be paying attention to the role that culture played in the events leading to the collapse and the aftermath.
If you may recall, an avalanche trapped 20 people in a tunnel in Japan in 1996 stirred up a discussion of the cultural obstacles that hindered any decisive moves to begin rescue efforts.
