    UPDATE 0940 EST:

    The container ship Dali, which crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, USA, causing its collapse, was chartered by the Danish company Maersk.

    The vessel was sailing under the flag of Singapore, heading from Baltimore to Colombo in Sri Lanka.

    A container ship slammed into an iconic bridge in Baltimore on the Patapsco River early Tuesday morning, causing a bridge to collapse with vehicles spiraling into the river. Authorities have declared it “a dire emergency.”

    The incident occurred at about 1:30 a.m. on the Francis Scott Key Bridge igniting an emergency search-and-rescue operation in the river. 

    At least 20 people were believed to be in the water, and the container ship was  billowing smoke, officials said.

    At an early morning press conference at about 6:40 a.m., officials said only two people had been rescued from the water. 

    Video posted on the social platform X showed the ship striking one of the support columns of the bridge, causing it and over 10 vehicles to collapse and plunge into the water. Temperatures were in the low 40s.

    “This is a dire emergency,” Kevin Cartwright, a Baltimore Fire Department spokesman, told The Associated Press. “Our focus right now is trying to rescue and recover these people.” 

    He called the collapse a “developing mass casualty event.”
