Uncertainty has prompted calls to improve working and safety conditions for all workers, regardless of their origin.

“We found out from other coworkers at the company, they told us that my brother was in the center of the bridge,” said Martín Suazo.

He added brother’s other colleagues, who were at one end of the bridge were saved.

Maynor worked at night, according to his brother, since he had not been working for the company for very long.

“He had only been in that company for a year and he had to adapt to the schedule that the company deemed convenient,” he added.

Maynor was the pillar of his family

Maynor Suazo’s brother continued: “He was the fundamental pillar, the bastion so that other members of the family could also travel there and later get visas and everything.”

“He was really the driving force so that most of the family could travel.” Maynor has a wife and two children, ages 17 and 5.

Martín Suazo Sandoval said that his brother never spoke of being afraid of the job, despite the height at which he worked on the bridges.

«He always told us that you had to triple your effort to get ahead,” said Martin Suazo.

Although several hours had passed without information about the four Hispanic workers who remain missing, his family continued to hope to find him alive.

“We are positivists and the best news is that he is alive, but we also have to be aware of the real situation,” said Maynor Suazo’s brother.

The Associated Press reported that authorities suspended the underwater search after finding two bodies following the bridge collapse in Baltimore.

The Police Chief explained that divers cannot operate safely due to bad weather and a large amount of debris.
