New Yorkers walk across Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan due to power black out

New Yorkers walk across Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan due to an electrical power black out throughout parts of north-eastern sea board of North America, on Thursday 14 August 2003. A major blackout left New York and cities across the north eastern United States and south eastern Canada without power, causing traffic chaos, trapping people in dark subwaytrains and elevators, and shutting down airports and nuclear plants. Hundreds of thousands of people flooded onto Manhattan streets after the outage, which hit shortly after 4 p.m. (2000 GMT) on a hotsummer day, knocking out traffic lights as the evening rush hour was getting under way and leaving skyscrapers, hospitals and homeswithout electricity.
