Final body recovered from Minneapolis bridge collapse, toll reaches 13

The remains of the last person missing in Mississippi River, after a bridge collapsed three weeks ago, have been found. Bringing the official death toll to 13, authorities said.

Gregory Jolstad, nicknamed "Jolly," was on the construction crew that was resurfacing the bridge when it fell Aug. 1 during the evening rush hour.

Divers had gone back in the water early Monday, and Jolstad's wife, Lisa Jolstad, had said officials vowed to continue until they found her husband.

The recovery, announced by the medical examiner, ends the search for bodies and allows construction crews to proceed with removing the collapsed pieces of the bridge.

Jolstad, 45, was one of 18 construction workers on the bridge working for Progressive Contractors Inc. The other 17 survived the collapse. Seven suffered injuries, but none critical.

Also Monday, Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty asked President George W. Bush to declare the collapse a major disaster, which would make the state eligible for more federal money. The governor said the emergency response costs alone would be more than $8 million (EUR 5.94 million).

Bush was scheduled to be in Minneapolis on Tuesday and to get a briefing on the bridge.
