This study wanted to find out the hidden dimensions behind the bridge failures across the globe resulting to deaths using fractal analysis, a different lens to analyze available data. Fractal statistical analysis revealed that there were four (4) top and four (4) bottom of the list of bridges (or 3 percent of the 117 bridges) that caused the highest and lowest number of deaths, respectively. Examining the common characteristics in terms of the bridges' failures, the results implied that the bridges that were built in the past did not give the most durable bridge structures and they caused more casualties. Meanwhile, the bridges that were built recently gave the least number of casualties. This leads to the conclusion that the hidden dimension is innovative bridge construction engineering and technology to prevent structural failures in bridges.
