Sad News: A 77-year-old man tragically fell to his death after a drawbridge he was crossing opened while he was still on it.


Richard Dujardin was halfway across the bridge in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Monday, when it began to rise.

He was due to fly home to Rhode Island later that day with his wife Rose-Marie, but they wanted to make it to mass at a nearby church before they left.

While his wife made it across the bridge, sadly Dujardin was yet to make it as he walked slowly.

A report from the Milwaukee County medical examiner, obtained by WDJT-TV, also said that he wore a hearing aid and was looking at an iPad at the time of the incident.

The report said he tried to catch up to his wife as the bridge began to rise, but wasn’t fast enough.
