Skyway pier looking back

On May 9th, 1980 the Sunshine Skyway bridge (built in 1969)collapsed when The SS Summit Venture a freighter over 19,000 tons crashed into the bridge. Causing a collapse and 35 people died in tragedy. The ship apparently lost it’s radar in a tropical storm. ¬†Wesley MacIntire was the sole survivor. He somehow survived after landing on the ships deck and rolling into the bay. There doesn’t seem to be a memorial for those who died. In 1993 the bridge was demolished after the new skyway bridge was built. The fishing piers are the only thing left standing.

In Memory of the 35!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
