In the early hours of the morning, a kilometre-long bridge in Maryland made headlines when its middle portion collapsed. The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. local time when the freighter Dali veered off course near the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The dramatic accident, described as something out of an action movie by Mayor Brandon Scott, drew international attention and condolences from US President Joe Biden.

Two workers were rescued from the water, while six others remained missing, along with the occupants of the cars that fell into the water. Divers continued to search for survivors in the cold water, with diminishing hopes of finding them due to the low water temperature.
