Dali containership moves from Baltimore Bridge ruins

The Dali containership has been removed from the remains of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland after 55 days.

The US Army Corps of Engineers reported that the containership was moved by tugboats in good environmental circumstances.

According to NBC News, the tugboats guided the Dali 2 and a half miles to a local port at a speed of roughly 1 mile per hour (mph) when it was liberated and in open water.

The vessel collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge in the early hours of 26 March.

The bridge collapse resulted in the deaths of six construction workers.

The containership had been under bridge destruction for more than eight weeks until crews in Baltimore released it with controlled explosions.

NBC News reported that 22 crew members of the Dali are finally free, as they remained on board the ship ever since the collision occurred.

On 16 May, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) revealed that the Dali containership experienced a loss of electrical power approximately 10 hours before the Francis Scott Key Bridge collision.
