Officials informed the victim’s relatives on Monday, according to the Key Bridge Response Unified Command.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed as a result of a shipping ship called the Dali colliding with it late last month while leaving Baltimore Harbor on its way to Sri Lanka and losing power.

That evening, six out of the eight construction workers on the bridge perished in the fall. Since then, the Coast Guard has initiated efforts to retrieve the victims’ corpses.

According to The Washington Post and The Associated Press, who cited people with knowledge of the situation, the FBI has reportedly launched an inquiry into the event. The Hill was informed on Monday by the FBI that agents were on board the cargo ship.
