Collapsed pier

A roller coaster sits in the ocean on Nov. 25 after the Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, N.J. collapsed during last month's Superstorm Sandy, which will cost the state $29.4 billion in damage and economic losses according to Gov. Chris Christie.

 

Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers has asked the Coast Guard to find out whether the coaster is structurally stable, adding that it would make a great tourist attraction.
