P. Butler)
The Brooklyn bridge design was made by John Augustus Roebling, an architect with a relatively modest experience in suspended bridge construction. He died few days after the beginning of the construction work, after stepping on a cable round and contacting tetanus. His son, Washington Augustus Roebling, took over the project management. Unfortunately, as a fire started in the deepest caisson wooden structure, he spent more than 12 hours at 30 m in the caisson trying to fight the fire and decompressed without any stop. As he became crippled, he was forced to stay at his office. He kept controlling the work with his binoculars while his wife Emily helped him communicating with the workers. When the bridge was inaugurated in 1883, Phineas Barnum demonstrated his strength by crossing the river with the 21 elephants of his circus. Very large caissons were employed in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, one of them being sunk to a maximum depth of 30 m. The working conditions were dramatic and there were at least 27 fatalities. There was neither knowledge nor understanding of the decompression process. Although 110 cases of serious decompression illness were recorded by the attending physician, recompression was not used for treatment. It was on the Brooklyn Bridge project that the word “bends” was coined for decompression illness. A stilted way of walking affected by fashionable ladies of the time was termed “the Grecian Bend”. When the caisson workers showed signs of decompression illness, their painful attitude suggested the Grecian Bend. The term was shortened to “doing the bend” and finally “bends” or “bent” became legitimized by use.
