For Sydney and Sara's last episode of 2023, we delve into a pivotal moment in engineering history, the Kansas City Hyatt Walkway Collapse. We unravel the heartbreaking events of July 17, 1981, when two suspended walkways in the Hyatt Regency Hotel collapsed, claiming the lives of 144 people and injuring countless others. We examine the cause, aftermath, and the lasting impact on building design and safety regulations.
