The Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed early Tuesday

Updated March 28, 2024 at 9:02pm EST

According to Washington Post

“Divers recovered the remains of two people from a red pickup truck submerged in the Patapsco River, officials said Wednesday, nearly 35 hours after a massive container ship crashed into Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge and sent it plunging into the water. Recovery efforts for remaining victims were called off as conditions made it impossible for divers to safely navigate the wreckage. Officials will now begin a salvage operation. Sonar has indicated that there are more vehicles near the underwater rubble, authorities said during a news conference Wednesday evening. At least six people, part of a construction crew that was repairing potholes and masonry on the bridge, are presumed dead. Two other workers were rescued”
