 Baltimore Key Bridge Collapse: Four Construction Workers Still Missing

In the wake of the unexpected and tragic incident at Baltimore's Francis Scott Key Bridge, where a collision with a cargo ship led to a partial collapse, the search for the missing construction workers has taken a grievous turn. Out of the six workers who initially went unaccounted for following the collapse, we now understand that four workers are still missing.

The search-and-rescue mission that promptly commenced after the incident transformed into a recovery operation late Tuesday night, signaling a somber shift in expectations. Hope continues to dwindle as time passes, however, efforts have not ceased and teams are working diligently to locate the missing individuals.

Among the missing is confirmed the last worker from Mexico, as reported by the country's foreign ministry. Their identities remind us of the real and heart-wrenching human element behind these operations – individuals with families and loved ones awaiting their return.

In a fortunate turn amidst the disaster, two of the construction workers involved in the catastrophic event survived. Details on their condition are limited, but their safety brings at least some relief during this harrowing time.

This catastrophe has resonated throughout the community, impacting many. Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the collapse and evaluate the integrity of the remaining infrastructure. Meanwhile, local news outlets have been vigilant in their coverage, with ABC News' reporters Sabina Ghebremedhin, Kristina Abovyan, and Dhanika Pineda contributing firsthand accounts and updates on this ongoing story.

Safety protocols and the sequence of events that led to the collapse will undoubtedly be reviewed as well. For now, the focus remains on the search for the four missing workers and support for all those affected by this tragic event.

This is a developing story, and we commit to providing updates as new information emerges. If you're in the area or potentially affected by this event, please turn on desktop notifications or follow local news channels for real-time updates on the situation. [1][2]
