Neb. Students Take Unexpected Swim Before Prom

Talk about a prom night to remember.

A group of Nebraska students taking prom pictures took an unexpected swim before making it to the dance, and KTIV was one of the first to cover it.

"All that weight on the bridge caused the group to take a dip into the White's four-foot deep pond behind their house."

"Minus a few scrapes and a ton of wet tuxes and dresses, the group made it out with no serious injuries." A few damp spirits aside, the students still made it to Pierce High School's prom.

But the next day one student tweeted what happened. As you can imagine, that picture went viral.

Now, if you're thinking you've heard this story before, that's because you have. Basically the same thing happened two years ago to a group of Wisconsin students.

NBC reported, "This dock just couldn't take the weight of all these dolled up Wisconsin high schoolers and then you can see it gave way. One student said the girls were screaming and the boys were laughing."

We're sure the Nebraska bunch will be able to look back and laugh at their experience too.

I don't see ANY words of sympathy for the poor bridge . There is the bridge , minding its own business of letting one or two people walking on it and LO !!! Here comes a whole flock of young
yoyo's that want to pause on it all at one time. Let's take up a collection to get that bridge UPright
and as comon sense seems to be 'evolving' out of most humans , let the poor bridge have some steel implants.

I can not believe how many rude comments there are here about the weight of these girls. Don't judge a book by it's cover and I think they look beautiful. They all look happy and excited and you are so ignorant to try to take that away from their night. I'll bet they still had a great time and are still laughing about it.

And there wasn't an overweight girl among that group. Maybe if the boys came along after that one in the pic, it might have been their big weighty bodies that did the job.

The bridge did not actually collapse, it just rolled over cause all the weight was on one side.
