I know, I know, it could happen to anyone, but still it's funny.
 
Valdivia - Chile's first drawbridge has been hit with an engineering fault: one of it's traffic decks was built upside down in an error blamed on Spanish engineers.
The bridge, in Valdivia, was supposed to open this month after a $30 million engineering programme.
It was reported that the mistake was only noticed when engineers inspected their handy work.
The Chilean President, Sebastian Pinera, was reported as saying the error will be sorted entirely by Spanish firm Azvi in full confidence that it can indeed be fixed quickly.
