Baltimore Key Bridge collapse: Fifth victim's body recovered by divers

Divers have recovered the body of the fifth victim in the tragic Baltimore Key Bridge collapse

Deep in the Patapsco River, Unified Command salvage teams said they spotted a missing construction vehicle Wednesday, and quickly notified the Maryland Department of State Police.

Inside the red truck, officials found Miguel Angel Luna Gonzalez, of Glen Burnie. The 49-year-old was one of six men who lost their lives when a Sri Lanka-bound container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge, causing it to crumble into the river on March 26. 

The Unified Command said multiple agencies, including the Maryland State Police Department's underwater recovery team and the FBI, helped bring the body out of the water.

Butler, said: "We remain dedicated to the ongoing recovery operations while knowing behind each person lost in this tragedy lies a loving family," Along with our local, state and federal partners, we ask that everyone extend their deepest sympathies and support to the families during this difficult time."

"We continue to pray for Miguel Angel Luna Gonzalez, his family and all those who love him, acknowledging the anguish they have experienced since the Key Bridge collapsed," Gov. Wes Moore said in a statement Thursday. "We pray for comfort, we pray for healing, and we pray for peace in knowing that their loved one has finally come home."
