Paseo Del Mar is a street way across San Pedro Los Angeles, California. When the place was first occupied by the US Military, since the 1910s, with military bunkers entitled as Fort MacArthur, (were in use from the First and Second World War) the bases were decommissioned in 1974, for home-neighborhood expansion. Ever since the street Paseo Del Mar became a friendly place, the long bridge was repainted, and cleaned up.

However things would soon change when in October of 2011, the bridge began to shake slightly, and cracks in the road were appearing, so construction road workers began patching it up. Then came the bridges death knell, when on November 2011 the bridge broke apart. Safety regulators had closed down the road on both ends, to keep people safe. Throughout November 15th-21st 2011, the bridge was destroyed by a landslide.

On November 21st of that morning, news reporters stormed around the streets of San Pedro, filming the landslide incident on live TV, such as the BBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, and KTLA 5 networks. Meanwhile on KTLA 5, reporter Eric Spillman, was interviewing Republican senator Janice Hahn to discuss the matters of the landslide stability, and her concern about the homes on the other side of the road, however the original footage itself is proven to be lost, that being the only record in its existence being the YouTube video from SanPedroNewsPilot.[1] The other news film reel incidents from the BBC, NBC, and ABC reports are also lost, because of losing supportive data.[2] [3]
