Just moments before disaster
A man frantically shouts and waves his handssignaling to a car on the other side of a bridge to back up.
And as if he had foreseen what was about to come, the bridge collapses and the river below swallows a large section.
CCTV footage captures the scene of a man about to save a driver's lifejust seconds before Typhoon Maysak demolishes a bridge in the city of Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do Province on Tuesday.

"I noticed the bridge had sunk even lower, so I stopped the car from crossing. My wife called 119 as I stood watching. A lot of people normally cross that bridge to get to work."

The country is no longer under the direct influence of Maysak.
But another storm, Typhoon Haishen, is forecast to touch down on the Korean peninsula in a few days, raising concerns that more damage is on the way.
