    Public Buses Brave Flooded Bridge in Nicaragua

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DigibuzzMM says she shot this video August 27 while visiting Nicaragua to make a documentary. She says she filmed buses crossing and then decided that chancing the cross was necessary. Her group paid seven men to push their truck across, and she describes the trip as feeling almost as if she was floating through.
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    After visiting Quilali, Nicaragua to assist Mano a Mano Para La Salud, we were heading for the airport in Managua and had to stop at this flooded bridge.  We saw some public transportation buses cross while the water was still 4 feet over the bridge.  We waited until it was 3 feet over the bridge before we crossed in our van.  However, we had the van in neutral, engine off and 7 Nicaraguans pushed us across.
