People flocked to the Springmaid Pier Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016, to say goodbye to a beloved landmark they hoped would soon be restored. The 1,060-foot-long pier - the longest to stretch out into the Atlantic Ocean from Myrtle Beach - was demolished by the crushing surf churned up by Hurricane Matthew. Fans of the pier helped in its cleanup Sunday by taking its remains home as treasured keepsakes. Josh Bell jbell@thesunnews.com
