Watch these backpackers survive a bridge collapse in New Zealand

A video uploaded to YouTube on October 5 shows four French hikers crossing a river in New Zealand on a rickety bridge.

Halfway through, the bridge overturns and spills them all into the water below. Thankfully, none of them were hurt, and one of them, Adrien Whistle, who was wearing a GoPro camera, caught the whole thing on video.

According to comments under the video, this occurred in Lake Waikaremoana in Great Walk, New Zealand.
