Prom Photo Session + Collapsing Bridge = King & Queen Up the Creek Without a Paddle
Can you take a picture of 22 prom-bound teenagers standing on a small bridge spanning a creek? Yes, if you hurry.
Apparently, the weight was just a little too much for the white wooden bridge at the residence of Andy White, of Pierce, Nebraska. Shortly after the student were in place, the bridge collapsed sending the teens into the cold water below. Other that a few scrapes and minor bruises, everybody was fine, and somewhat soggy for the grand entrance.
Lane Rohrich, who posted the pic on Twitter, received 52,000 retweets and over 62,000 “favorited” the post on the social media site as of Thursday morning.

By the end of Saturday night, the gang was the talk of Pierce.
