6 presumed dead in Baltimore bridge collapse, Biden promises to rebuild ASAP

by ian


Six construction workers in yesterday’s Baltimore bridge collapse are now presumed dead. Maryland Gov. Wes Moore confirmed the news this morning.

Officials say the cargo ship that struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge issued a mayday call, warning that it lost power. Moore says the distress call saved countless lives.

President Joe Biden is now directing his team to rebuild the bridge as soon as possible, as some economists fear its collapse could create supply chain problems along the East Coast. Experts are torn about how big the economic impact will be.
