And a heroic rescue involving a flatbed with a heavy load that was just in the right place at the right time providing a solid anchor. Pretty amazing pics show how the lives of two people and two dogs were miraculously saved.

Wife showed me that the other night — they had a couple hours to think about the drop, and it is a pretty long one

Makes you wonder. Did they make peace, and talk about how much they loved spending their lives together (like you would see on a TV show), or did they air out their dirty laundry toward each other regarding what they hate about each other, and now have to continue facing each other.........

Probably a little of both— relatively sure she and the dogs tore him a new ass when they all were safe

I’ve never been on that bridge.

Wonder if it’s windy.

Them being stuck facing downwards. Perhaps the wind blowing with a bit of swinging.

Like something you’d see in a movie.

They’ll probably have nightmares for some time to come.

At least you can't blame him for not having enough truck. That's not a lot of trailer for an F350.

I can't tell in the pic but did he have away control bars on it?

Maybe they took one last chance to make mad passionate love.

Yes, it can definitely be windy there.

Sarcastic remark goes here
Why has there not been any closeup pictures of the breakaway chains?

This could be excellent free advertising for the manufacturer. 😎
