Divers have recovered the remains of two of the six workers missing since they were tossed into Baltimore harbour from a highway bridge that collapsed into shipping lanes when a faltering cargo freighter rammed into the structure. The cargo was carrying hundreds of tons of hazardous materials, including corrosive and flammable chemicals. The first realisation that something was wrong came three minutes before the crash. Marcel Muise, an investigator with the NTSB, said that the crew called for tugs to help it navigate away from port at 1.26am. Police monitoring the bridge received a mayday call telling them that the Singapore-flagged vessel had lost power in the Patapsco river and was drifting towards the bridge. By 1.29am the bridge had collapsed.
