School bus door from I-35W bridge collapse

Emergency exit door from a school bus made by the Blue Bird Corporation of Fort Valley, Georgia, circa 2007. The school bus was transporting a group of day camp students when it was involved in the collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on August 1, 2007. The door is signed by all of the children and adults who were on the bus at that time.
