Baltimore Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapses

The Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed this morning after one of the supports for the bridge was struck by a cargo ship. It's a developing situation, but they've declared it a mass casualty incident.

Reports indicate that the ship's crew has been accounted for - however there was active construction crews on the bridge at the time of the collapse as well as commuters.

"We received several 911 calls at around 1:30 a.m., that a vessel struck the Key Bridge in Baltimore, causing the collapse," Kevin Cartwright, director of communications for the Baltimore Fire Department, told Reuters. "This is currently a mass casualty incident and we are searching for seven people who are in the river."

The Absurd History Of Parachuting Animals

Today we learned that since about 1943, we've been parachuting animals from planes for different reasons. Whether it's for wildlife management or for scientific research.

It was in 1948 that scientists removed 8 crates of beavers from a beaver infested area and flew over the Chamberlain Basin to relocate them. Only one perished, but the rest created a new colony in their new environment.

They also used a bear to test the effects of supersonic speed on the body by launching one out of a Hustler's fuselage at an altitude of 35,000 feet while traveling at MACH TWO speed. After an almost eight-minute descent, the pod touched land. The bear was fine.
