A Unified Command longshoreman stands next to a massive 200-ton hydraulic salvage grab arriving at Sparrows Point after a weeklong barge journey from Galveston, Texas. Boasting a 1,000-metric-ton capacity, the grab will be used to recover a significant portion of the 50,000 tons of wreckage from the #FSKBridge collapse site. The grab picked up 20 cars at a time during M/V Golden Ray salvage operations, which capsized in 2019 carrying 4,200 cars off the Georgia coast. Debris and wreckage removal is ongoing in support of a top priority to safety and efficiently reopen the Fort McHenry Channel.
