A pier along Seattle’s waterfront partially collapsed last weekend as crews were demolishing portions of it, injuring two workers. Pier 58, supports the a park between the Seattle Aquarium and a ferris wheel. It gave way roughly a month after officials discovered it had moved several inches away from the land. When workers were on site, a monitoring alarm system triggered an evacuation, however two workers fell in the water. Both men were rescued and evacuated. Officials have now decided to accelerate the removal of the pier.
