In lighter moments
Amy Cruce, front, and Susan Garcia, background, pose for a photo on the swinging bridge from which they and 10 others would fall just a few days later during a missions trip to Honduras. Two volunteers were killed in the mishap. "It was just one of those God things that neither of us were killed," Garcia said.
     NORCROSS, Ga. (BP)--Amy Cruce's best friend hung on to the bottom of an overturned footbridge above a Honduran ravine. "I'm slipping!" she yelled. Cruce closed her eyes for just a moment. When she opened her eyes, her friend had fallen.
     Bill Cordrey had hung on to the wooden suspension bridge as long as he could. After he fell, he looked up to see his wife hold on for just moments longer, then tumble through the air and the trees into the ravine near him.
