Love locks bridge reopens in Paris
Monday, June 16, 2014 9:00 AM EDT
aris have returned to the bridge that suffered a partial collapse last week and the love locks are back.
The gate of the
ridge over the
iver is a romantic spot on its own.
But then you add a fad that started about ten years ago
mitten couples attached padlocks to the bridge as a symbol of locking away their love. The couples then throw the keys into the river.
Unfortunately that eternal love caused a portion of the historic bridge to collapse earlier this week from the weight of the locks.
The city patched the bridge and removed a large number of locks, but couples returned and attached so many new locks that the bridge is already in jeopardy again.
