Miraculous Survival: One Construction Worker Escapes Tragic Accident on Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge

Construction Company Claims Only One Worker Survived Collapse of Bridge

Construction workers are often hailed as heroes for their hard work and dedication, but one worker from Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge miraculously survived a tragic accident that claimed the lives of six others. The workers, all employees of Brawner Builders, were on a meal break when a cargo ship collided with the bridge around 1:30 a.m., causing the bridge to collapse.

Rescue efforts were suspended Tuesday evening after officials determined that the workers had likely drowned in the Patapsco River due to the depth of the water and the time that had passed since the incident. Two people were rescued from the water, but it remains unknown what happened to the other six workers who fell into the river.

The mayday call from the crew members on board the Singapore-tagged Dali cargo ship likely saved many lives by alerting officials in time to stop traffic on both sides of the bridge before more cars drove over it. 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.
