MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- People who were injured or lost loved ones in the Minneapolis bridge collapse five years ago say they still deal with the grief from that day, but they are moving on with their lives in different ways.
The Pioneer Press reports Wednesday that some have married or remarried. Some have had children. But all still live with the tragedy every day. In all, 13 people were killed and 145 injured.
Betsy Sathers, who lost her husband of 10 months, is raising two children adopted from Haiti. Garrett Ebling, terribly injured in the collapse, has since married and had a child but says the emotional wounds are hardest to heal. Gary Babineau, who seriously hurt his back, opted against risky surgery to fix it but now manages often excruciating pain.
