By Ninian Carter

March 26, 2024 - Die Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore stürzte ein, nachdem sie von einem Container Schiff unter Singapur Flagge gerammt worden war. Mehrere Fahrzeuge stürzten von der Brücke in den Patapsco Fluß.

A container ship has crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, causing it to collapse and plunge into the river below.

Several vehicles fell into the extremely cold Patapsco River, with rescuers initially searching for at least seven people.

Two people were rescued from the water, one in serious condition, according to the Baltimore Fire Service.

At 1:30am (local time), the Singapore-flagged “Dali” container ship lost power, adjusted its course and started smoking before hitting a bridge support.
