Construction Company Claims Only One Worker Survived Collapse of Bridge

Six Baltimore Construction Workers Lost in Tragic Accident: The Survivor and the Search for Missing Remains

In Baltimore, six construction workers tragically lost their lives when a cargo ship collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The lone survivor, all of whom were employees of Brawner Builders, was miraculously pulled from the Patapsco River after the incident. Despite efforts to locate the remains of the other workers, they have yet to be recovered due to the time that has passed and the depth of the water.

The search and rescue mission was suspended on Tuesday evening after officials determined that the workers were no longer alive. The Dali cargo ship, which was tagged in Singapore, struck the bridge at around 1:30 a.m., causing it to collapse. The workers were on their meal break at the time of the collision. Two individuals were rescued from the water but unfortunately, little is known about what happened to the other six workers.

The mayday call from the crew members on board likely saved many lives as officials were able to stop traffic on both sides of the bridge before more cars drove over it. Engineers stated that while construction oversights may have contributed to some extent, ultimately it was due to sheer force of cargo ship that caused bridge collapse. Governor Wes Moore of Maryland commended them for their quick thinking and bravery in preventing further casualties.
