Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse in Baltimore: The Search for the Missing Continues – Here’s What We Know

In Baltimore, the search is actively ongoing for six construction workers who went missing following a catastrophic incident at the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Early Tuesday morning, the bridge suffered a collapse after being hit by a cargo ship that had lost power. The missing individuals hail from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico, and have made their homes in Dundalk and Highlandtown, as reported by The Baltimore Banner, our media partners.

According to The Banner, these men, who are in their 30s and 40s, have families with spouses and children. They moved to the city seeking a better life and are described as hard-working and humble individuals. The collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge occurred when a support column was struck by the large container ship, resulting in vehicles and people plunging into the Patapsco River, as confirmed by authorities.

By Tuesday afternoon, six people from the construction crew, who were working on filling potholes on the bridge at the time, remained unaccounted for. Fortunately, two other workers were rescued from the water.
