Fourth Body Found in Port of Baltimore

Two remain missing from Key Bridge collapse tragedy

The body of a fourth construction worker has been recovered from the wreckage of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge that tragically collapsed three weeks ago today.

Salvage teams on Sunday located what they “believed to be one of the missing construction vehicles” that plunged into the water in the collapse last month, WBAL reported. A body was discovered inside the car.

At the request of the family, the name of the victim was not disclosed.

“As we mourn the lives lost and continue the recovery operation, we recognize each missing individual is someone’s beloved friend or family member,” Colonel Roland Butler, Jr., uperintendent of the Maryland Department of State Police, said in a statement.

Six construction workers who had been repairing potholes on the bridge were killed. Two of them remain missing.

FBI agents have been collecting physical evidence and data from inside the ship relating to moments before, during and after impact.

“The city of Baltimore will take decisive action to hold responsible all entities accountable for the Key Bridge tragedy, including the owner, charterer, manager/operator, and the manufacturer of the M/V Dali, as well as any other potentially liable third parties,” Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said in a statement.

President Joe Biden promised he would make rebuilding the bridge a priority, citing the Port of Baltimore’s major economic impact on the region.

The National Transportation Safety Board is also investigating the collapse.

Attorneys representing two of the dead workers and one who survived are also conducting an independent investigation into the crash.
