Rescuing survivors - Tragedy on the home front - Did you know that...

Rescuing the Survivors from the Centre Span of the Quebec Bridge after it fell into the St. Lawrence River, 11 September 1916
Even though rescue craft were quickly employed, 11 men died from the fall of the centre section of the Quebec Bridge. Despite two catastrophes and wartime constraints on men and materials, construction on the bridge continued. The Quebec Bridge was finally completed in 1917.
