Partners Killed In FIU Bridge Collapse To Be Buried Together On Wednesday

Osvaldo González and Alberto Arias were partners for 21 years. They were together and both killed when the pedestrian bridge collapsed near FIU last week. 

During a press conference on Tuesday, the families of the "soul mates" said the partners of over two decades will be buried together on Wednesday.

Arias' nephew Luis said Arias, 53, and González, 57, were "two beautiful beings." Luis sent his condolences to the other families who are mourning. The bridge collapse near Florida International University killed four other people.

Luis said the men were "selfless" and that they were always "full of life, full of joy."

The Cuban men were driving together before the 950-ton bridge crashed down.

"Up to their final moment, they were together," Luis said.
