The suspension bridge ruins in Yanping Township, Taitung County is located on the Pasnanavan Historic Trail from Siusui (Qingshui) to Songshan. The purpose of the bridge was mainly to cross over to the tribe on the opposite riverbank. However, the suspension bridge’s iron cable has been damaged and only the bridge piers are left. The tribe elders think that it was destroyed by the Haisul family when the Pasnanavan incident occurred in 1941.
The incident was caused by the Haisul family who originally lived in Halipusungshe. However, due to the indigene relocation project, the Haisul family and other tribesmen were collectively moved to the west side of Luanshan in 1940. The tribesmen could not adjust to the new environment and fell ill at the new location. Feeling angry, they moved back to Halipusungshe the following year and attacked the Siusui (Qingshui) Police Post at night. Three Amis police officers, Inspector Sugawara and his family were killed that night. The next morning, Haisul and tribesmen continued to attack the Kaili Police Post and Kakaiyu Police Post.
