Today is the 10-year anniversary of the deadly Aggie bonfire that left 12 students dead.

Texas A&M students traditionally constructed a 59-foot tower of logs for the school's annual bonfire. It was a celebration of the school's big football game against their arch-rival, the University of Texas Longhorns.

On November 18, 1999, the tower was poorly constructed. It collapsed, killing a dozen students.
