On Tuesday morning, the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed after a ship crashed into one of its supports. The news was reported by The Telegraph. Fortunately, a Baltimore resident named Jayden managed to avoid disaster after crossing the bridge three times just minutes before it collapsed. Jayden had been on his way home from an argument with his girlfriend when he received texts about the collapse.

The incident occurred at around 1:30 a.m., and six construction workers are presumed dead as a result of the collapse. According to the city’s fire chief, two people were rescued from the water, with one being sent to a local trauma center in “very serious condition.” If not for the ship’s distress call, which gave officials time to close car traffic on the bridge, the incident could have been much more catastrophic.

Engineering experts have noted that the 95,000-ton container ship’s size played a significant role in the bridge’s collapse. This has raised questions about bridge safety and has implications for both the shipping and engineering industries. The incident serves as a reminder of how important it is for both industries to prioritize safety and take appropriate measures to prevent accidents like this one from happening again in the future.
