WVa Couple Get Bridge Souvenir In Their Bedroom

By  | 

Mason, W.Va. (AP) -- A West Virginia couple got an unexpected souvenir from the demolition of the Pomeroy Mason Bridge when a piece of it landed in their spare bedroom.

When workers imploded the top half of a pier Wednesday, the blast sent a football-sized piece through the siding of Steve and Kelly Stewart's house in Mason.

Kelly Stewart says the piece landed in a bean bag chair and missed her by a few feet.

She says she was standing in the room filming the demolition.

The pier on West Virginia's side of the Ohio River was the last major remnant of the bridge that linked Mason with Pomeroy, Ohio.

A new bridge opened in December.
