Baltimore Bridge Collapse: Indian Crew On Ship That Hit The Bridge To Stay On Board Till The Probe Ends


Baltimore: The container ship Dali, which collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, has a crew of twenty Indians and one Sri Lankan, and they will stay on board until the investigation into the incident is finished as told on March 31. According to a representative for the ship’s owner, Grace Ocean Pte, the crew members were supporting the Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board in their inquiry.

The representative did not, however, provide an estimated length of time that the crew would need to remain on board. According to the spokeswoman, the crew will stay on board until the investigation is over, but it is unknown how long it will take at this point. As part of their investigations, the US authorities have already started interviewing the crew members on board and have gathered papers and extracts from the voyage data recorder.

According to National Transportation Safety Board chief Jennifer Homendy, there were a lot of dangerous and combustible goods on board the cargo ship. Since the container ship’s collision with the 2.6 km long Francis Scott Key Bridge on March 26, the crew has been on board. The cargo ship was headed for Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo.

It is assumed that six of the construction workers were killed when the disaster happened while they were patching potholes on the bridge. Only two bodies have been found so far. The Indian crew, who are reportedly in good condition, are being closely monitored by the Indian Embassy in Washington, according to a PTI report from last week from the Ministry of External Affairs (EAM). Following treatment and release from the hospital, one crew member who was hurt in the collision has been identified.

The company supporting Synergy Marine, the ship’s management company, had earlier stated that there was more than enough food, water, and gasoline for the generators to run among the crew members. At least eight people went into the water with six others presumed dead after the collision. The 2.6-kilometer Francis Scott Key Bridge and the ship collided last week as it was leaving the busy port. As the ship impacted one of the supports of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, cars were flung into the river. An eight-person construction crew fell into the river while fixing potholes on the bridge.
