bridge

WASHINGTON: The rescue operations for six people who fell into the water after the bridge collapsed in Baltimore, USA, has been called off. The coast guard said that even if the search continues, they will not be able to find them alive. They were part of a construction crew working on repairing potholes on the bridge when it collapsed.

Two were rescued earlier. More attention is now being given to recover the vehicles that had fallen down from the bridge during the accident. It is concluded that there may be people inside these vehicles. If so, the extent of the disaster will increase.

Meantime, reports said that all 22 Indians on board the ship that hit the bridge are safe. However, no details of them have been released yet. A government-level inquiry has been announced into the incident. A 24-member team of the traffic safety department has been appointed for the investigation.

One of Baltimore's longest bridges collapsed after a ship hit it. However, there is still no clear information about how many people have been injured and how many have been rescued.
