Maryland Governor Wes Moore told reporters on Friday (March 29) additional cranes and resources were en route to begin clearing the massive wreckage caused by the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge earlier this week. The biggest operational crane on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard towered over Baltimore's port on Friday, ready to begin clearing the wreckage of the Francis Scott Key Bridge days after a cargo ship crashed into it, sending the span crashing into the harbour. Crews were still surveying the damage as of midday Friday.
