2 Bodies Recovered from Baltimore Bridge Collapse; 4 Others Presumed Dead

HeadlineMar 28, 2024

In Baltimore, rescue workers recovered the bodies of two victims of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse from the Patapsco River. The men were identified as 35-year-old Alejandro Hernández Fuentes, originally from Mexico, and 26-year-old Dorlian Ronial Castillo Cabrera from Guatemala. Another four people are still missing and presumed dead. All six victims were immigrant overnight construction workers.

The National Transportation Safety Board said the investigation into the cargo ship’s collision with the bridge could take one to two years to complete. President Biden has vowed to direct federal funds to pay for the entire cost of the bridge’s reconstruction.
