Emergency service workers were using hovercrafts and motorboats to inspect the scene of the bridge collapse in Washington as the sun came up today.
Scuba-divers and a helicopter were also taking part in the operation.

A four-lane bridge in the US state of Washington collapsed because a truck with an "oversized load" hit a steel beam above the lane, the Washington Times reports citing a police sergeant.
The newspaper reports that the bridge was classified as being “fracture critical” by the National Bridge Inventory, meaning that it was vulnerable to collapse if any part of the structure was damaged.
A man told the local Skagit Valley Herald newspaper he felt a vibration and looked in his rear view mirror to see that the part of bridge he had just crossed was no longer behind him. "I thought something was wrong with my car at first," he said.
Kari Ranten, a spokeswoman for Skagit Valley Hospital, said two people who were injured in the collapse were on their way to the hospital for medical care and that another person was being taken to a different area hospital.
