singapore ship crashes into francis scott key bridge

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a dramatic scene unfolded in Baltimore as a massive container ship collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge, causing its collapse into the freezing waters below. So far, rescuers have managed to save two individuals from the chilly depths.

Video footage captured the unsettling moment around 1:30 a.m. local time when the 1.6-mile-long bridge succumbed to the impact, following a collision with the Singapore-flagged Dali ship, which struck one of the bridge’s pillars.

Numerous vehicles, including one resembling a tractor-trailer, were traversing the bridge when the incident occurred.

Baltimore Police briefed reporters, highlighting the ongoing frantic search for at least seven individuals feared missing in the water. Despite hours passing since the catastrophe, only two people have been retrieved from the water, with one currently battling for survival in a hospital.

Sonar readings have detected multiple submerged vehicles, further complicating the rescue efforts.

In response to the crisis, Maryland Governor Wes Moore has declared a state of emergency, while the White House closely monitors the situation.
