Governor Moore's Statement on Successful Recovery Mission

Published: 4/5/2024

ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Wes Moore released the following statement on the successful recovery mission conducted by Unified Command:

“Maryland is praying for the family of Maynor Yasir Suazo-Sandoval and all of his loved ones. They have our thoughts, our hearts, and our support. 

In this moment, it’s important that we not just recognize the tragic loss of the six Marylanders who perished in the Key Bridge collapse – but also remember the ways in which they lifted up our state while they were still with us.

On the night of the collapse, these men were engaged in challenging, dangerous work – tending to our state’s infrastructure for our collective benefit. They hailed from communities that have gone long overlooked and underappreciated. But their work had dignity – and their contributions will never be forgotten.

On the day of the collapse, I said that we would stop at nothing to support these families. And we  will continue to stop at nothing to get them closure with dignity. But more than that, we must continue to offer them comfort, help, and healing in their hour of need.”
