台湾宜兰县南方澳跨港大桥坍塌 渔船遭压 抢救伤员

台湾宜兰县南方澳跨港大桥今天上午发生坍塌意外,现场压到3艘渔船,消防局第一时间即派员前往救援,并派遣直升机进行空勘记协助救援,截至下午2点左右救出10名伤者送医,仍有5人失联。 据台湾各地报道指出,事发时一辆油罐车正从桥上驶过,不料就在即将驶出桥之际突然发生断裂,油罐车也跟著下坠掉入码头,当场起火燃烧,窜起阵阵浓烟,驾驶稍早已经脱困获救,惟其伤势相当严重。 警方在接获通报后,全员出动进行救援,至于灾损多少,仍待厘清。 大桥坍塌后,压毁两艘渔船冒出浓烟,初估现场有20多人受伤,目前已救起10人,重伤六人,轻伤四人,持续抢救中。 除了油罐车司机是台湾籍人士以外,其他均为外籍渔工。 罗东博爱医院外科加护病房主任杨智杰表示,司机目前痛到说不出话来,但只记得事发时发生很大震动,听到“碰”的一声,便跌落桥下。而另5名失踪人士则为外籍船员,消防局出动潜水人员寻找生还者,但仍未寻获,目前正启动大型吊车,将被压垮的渔船吊起,以利进一步搜救。 南方澳跨港大桥于1999年兴建跨港大桥,大桥离海平面18公尺,以解决大型渔船无法通行之困境,使得南方澳渔港得以长远发展。 但据《联合新闻网》指出,近年负责维修的工程顾问公司曾在维修过程中发现缆绳已严重锈蚀,以及桥上多个链接处都曾遭车辆撞击,桥梁安全有问题,因此多次向港务公司提出,但却一直没有下文。 也有附近居民怀疑是因为去年海堤修复,载送大量消波块,因此压坏大桥,对此,基隆港务分公司主任林建明表示,消波快重量应在容许范围内。而港务公司总经理陈邵良说明,该桥平常也在进行维修,供游客、商业、渔业共用,至于断裂原因正在了解中,已请相关人员到现场了解。
