Firefighters climb onto the rubble of the collapsed Morandi motorway bridge to look for victims and survivors in the northern port city of Genoa on August 14, 2018. At least 30 people were killed on August 14 when the giant motorway bridge collapsed in Genoa in northwestern Italy. The collapse of the viaduct, which saw a vast stretch of the A10 freeway tumble on to railway lines in the northern port city, was the deadliest bridge failure in Italy for years, and the country's deputy transport minister warned the death toll could climb further.
