The week-long rescue operation ended on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, when the remains of the sixth and last construction employee was found at the Key Bridge debris location. José Mynor López, thirty-seven, is officially the final construction employee to be found following the bridge’s collapse on March 26.

Lopez migrated to the US in search of greater opportunities after leaving Guatemala, where he was born. His dad and his spouse resided in Dundalk. Other bodies found included Alejandro Hernandez Fuentes, Miguel Angel Luna Gonzalez, Dorlian Ronial Castillo Cabrera, Maynor Yasir Suazo-Sandoval, and Carlos Daniel Hernandez Estrella.

Colonel Roland Butler, Jr., Director of the Maryland Department of State Law Enforcement, said, “With sadness, today symbolizes a landmark in efforts to recover by offering comfort to the families of all six employees who died in this unfortunate tragedy.”

“José Mynor López, Alejandro Hernandez Fuentes, Dorlian Ronial Castillo Cabrera, Maynor Yasir Suazo-Sandoval, Carlos Daniel Hernandez Estrella, and Miguel Angel Luna Gonzalez are remembered as we grieve with the families,” he added.

“I feel horrible,” Isabel Franco stated. “Only God understands the pain in my heart. Perhaps he was fleeing in panic.” Due to the climatic conditions, Franco said a colleague informed her that the staff was instructed to pack up for the day and go earlier.

“He had a nice attitude and worked diligently. He was also always concerned about his loved ones. Even in death, he never stopped fighting for us.”

On March 26, at about 1:30 a.m., the cargo ship Dali struck the Key Bridge, forcing it to collapse and sending eight workers into the Patapsco River as they were fixing holes in the structure.
