Survivor of Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse Speaks Out: What Really Happened and What We Can Learn from This Tragic Event

Construction Company Claims Only One Worker Survived Collapse of Bridge

A miraculous construction worker survived the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, while six others are presumed dead. The workers were all employees of Brawner Builders and fell into the Patapsco River after a cargo ship collided with the bridge in Baltimore’s port. Search and rescue efforts were suspended Tuesday evening after officials deemed the workers no longer alive.

The Singapore-tagged Dali cargo ship crashed into the bridge around 1:30 a.m. due to a loss of power. The workers were on their meal break at the time of the incident, two people were rescued from the water, but the fate of the other six workers remains unknown. Engineers stated that the bridge collapse was inevitable due to the sheer force of the cargo ship, not as a result of any construction oversights. Governor Wes Moore of Maryland praised the crew’s actions for preventing further casualties.
