Centuries-old bridge in Hangzhou collapses following days of downpour

Part of Hangzhou's Huanxi Yongning Bridge over the Grand Canal in east China’s Zhejiang Province collapsed on Thursday after heavy rains lashed the city for days. The Grand Canal is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The centuries-old bridge, tracing back to 1770 during the Qing Dynasty, is 47 meters long and 8 meters wide.
The scenic spot, which was listed as a cultural relics protection site by the city’s government in 2000, is now closed for repairs.
