A major bridge in the US city of Baltimore has collapsed into the Patapsco River after a container ship crashed into it. The bridge snapped and plunged into the water at around 01:30 ET (05:30 GMT) along with vehicles and people. #Baltimore #bridge #Patapsco A huge search operation is underway for six missing people, authorities say, while two others have been pulled from the water. All of them are believed to be part of a construction crew that was repairing potholes at the time the bridge collapsed. The ship is now wedged into debris from the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which is 3km (1.6 miles) long and part of a major highway. It suffered a "power issue" and issued a distress call moments before the crash, officials say, but was travelling too quickly to change course Maryland Governor Wes Moore says the bridge will be rebuilt "in a way that remembers the people this tragedy has impacted and honours the community it serves."
