Search operation underway after Baltimore bridge collapse



A huge search operation is under way for at least seven people after a major bridge in the US city of Baltimore has collapsed into the Patapsco River after a container ship crashed into it today (March 26).

According to reports, two people have been pulled from the water.

The bridge snapped and plunged into the water at around 01:30 ET (05:30 GMT) along with vehicles and people.

According to maritime data, the container ship involved appears to be a Singapore-flagged vessel named Dali. It had departed the port in Baltimore at around 1 a.m. and was headed for the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, where it was due to arrive in late April.
