Bridge collapse in Baltimore | An SOS launched by the ship saved lives

(Baltimore) At least six people were missing Tuesday after the spectacular collapse of a major highway bridge in Baltimore, on the east coast of the United States, hit by a container ship in distress.

Despite a vast deployment of rescue services by air, on land, at sea and even underwater, only two survivors were found, one of whom was seriously injured.

It is “a terrible accident”, reacted President Joe Biden from the White House, almost twelve hours after the nighttime disaster whose results would have been worse if the ship, which suffered a “momentary loss of propulsion ”, had succeeded in launching a distress call.
