Ice Floes Move Bridge Six Feet Along In Flood-Hit New Brunswick, Canada (VIDEO)

Thawing ice has succeeded in nearly taking out a bridge in flood-hit New Brunswick, Canada.

This footage shows ice floes slipping under a bridge in Sainte-Marie de Kent – and apparently shifting the entire bridge up to six feet.

The clip was uploaded to YouTube on 17 April.

On the Canaan River the Cherryvale covered bridge, which was built in 1927, was swept clean away by the floodwaters.
