On March 4, 2001, Entre-os-Rios disaster (also famous as Hintze Ribeiro disaster) occurred when Hintze Ribeiro Bridge, made of concrete and steel, collapsed in Entre-os-Rios, Castelo de Paiva, Portugal, murdering 59 people, including those in three cars and a bus that were crossing Douro river.

A storm and fast waters at the time of accident gave no chance for rescue, and all the victims drowned. The river current carried bodies more than 30 km (19 miles) downstream to the Atlantic ocean. Bodies were later found as far away as Spain's north coast and one even in France.

The tragedy caused shock across the nation. All TV networks broadcasted continuous news bulletins. Many solidarity campaigns were organized to help the relatives of the victims.

The bridge had linked Entre-os-Rios and Castelo de Paiva. After the loss of Hintze Ribeiro Bridge, Castelo de Paiva residents had to travel additional 70 kilometers to reach Porto area.

The bridge was over 100 years old. The collapse was reportedly caused by "two decades of uncontrolled sand extraction, which compromised the stability of the bridge's pillars, together with underestimating the warnings from divers and technicians." The sand extractors were the only to be prosecuted and sued.
