A sample beginning

Here is an example starting paragraph to this essay to give you some ideas.. If you are stuck, please feel free to use this. However, we would rather you use your own beginning. It is always a delight to read what is swmming around in someone else's imgination.

I was one of the hundreds of people on the bridge trying to rush across in the rain. I did not even hear the crack as the bridge's old legs snapped. Everybody lost their balance and fell. Somebody's umbrella hit me as I fell and the iron frame went straight into my ear. I could not hear myself scream. Shocked by the pain, I slipped and fell halfway over the bridge's broken railings and face first to the sea when my foot saved me by getting caught in between the broken railings. I felt my ankle bend and then crack before finally my body stopped falling, dangling from the broken railings, the raging seawater just barely below me. It was pain beyond anything I knew. And then there was the fear. I was afraid I was going to die.
