Full video | Francis Scott Key bridge collapses in Baltimore

This video shows the minutes leading up to the Francis Scott Key bridge collapse, and the collapse itself.

The U.S. Coast Guard suspended search-and-rescue operations for the six construction workers missing since a Baltimore bridge collapsed early Tuesday.

It’s now a recovery operation, according to Maryland State Police.

“We do not believe that we are going to find any of these individuals still alive,” Rear Adm. Shannon Gilreath said.

Tuesday afternoon, Brawner Builders Executive Vice President Jeffrey Pritzker said the missing employees were presumed to have died given the water’s depth and the amount of time that had passed since the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed.

“This was so completely unforeseen,” Pritzker said. “We don’t know what else to say. We take such great pride in safety, and we have cones and signs and lights and barriers and flaggers. But we never foresaw that the bridge would collapse.”
