There Are Expensive Mistakes That Are Dan.gerous To Human Life

Mistakes are a part of human life. Every Human makes mistakes in his life and learns from those mistakes and moves ahead. Humans are also said to be the ‘Statue of Mistakes’. But if we make mistakes related to money then it is not so easy to recover. Below we have discussed some of the expensive mistakes made by humans and wasted millions of dollars for every mistake.

1. Seongsu Bridge Collapse

The Seongsu Bridge is a bridge built by Dong Ah Construction Industrial Company over the Han River in Seoul, South Korea. It links the Seongdong and Gangnam districts. The cantilever bridge was completed in 1979 and its total length is 1,160 metres (3,810 ft).

Seongsu Bridge collapse. Oct 21, 1994 – Seoul, South Korea.  The bridge collapsed early in the morning, when one if its concrete slabs fell due to a failure of the suspension structure caused by improper welding of the steel trusses supporting the roadway. 32 people died and 17 were injured in the accident. Afterwards, the bridge was to be repaired, but because of weakness to the structure it was completely redesigned and rebuilt (similar to the original design).

The original bridge collapsed early on the morning of October 21, 1994, when one of its sections broke off due to failure of the supporting truss, caused by a faulty weld. A total of 32 people died and 17 were injured in the accident. In the aftermath of the event, authorities planned to repair the bridge, but its structural weaknesses made a repair unfeasible and it was eventually dismantled and replaced. The new design was finished on 15 August 1997, and is similar to the original design.

2. Deadly Skyscarpers

The glass building acts as a magnifying glass.

‘Walkie Talkie’ skyscraper on Fenchurch Street in central London is melting cars, frying bike seats, and scorching sidewalks. The gusts of wind at the base of the building are so powerful that they are blowing people over and toppling signs off the nearby buildings.

Smoke rises from a bike seat as it melts in the sunlight reflecting off the skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch Street.

The Walkie-Talkie, which opened last year, has 690,000 square feet of office space and a rooftop garden. The glass building expands at the top, which makes it look like a concave mirror. People complained that the ‘death ray’ building was setting pavements, vehicles, and doormats alight.

3. Lotus Riverside Disaster

The collapse of Block 7 at Lotus Riverside in 2009 is an accident that killed one person. “According to Shanghai Daily, initial investigations attribute the accident to the excavations for the construction of a garage under the collapsed building. Large quantities of earth were removed and dumped in a landfill next to a nearby creek; the weight of the earth caused the river bank to collapse, which, in turn, allowed water to seep into the ground, creating a muddy foundation for the building that toppled.”

Frenzied construction pace throughout China’s ongoing building boom, the largest in recorded history, has left much to be wondered about safety and quality, as the toppling of this nearly finished 11 story apartment complex demonstrates.

Officials Probe Building Collapse In China. Officials probing nine people are part of their investigation into why the building toppled early Saturday. Chinese officials had hoped they had neutralized the issue of building safety following last year’s earthquake in Sichuan province, when thousands of buildings — including many schools — collapsed.
