3 Construction Workers Die in Miami Garage Collapse

MIAMI (AP/WGGB) — Officials say three construction workers have died after a parking garage collapsed in Miami just before noon Wednesday.

That’s according to the Huffington Post which reports that firefighters at 6:40 p.m. found the last unaccounted person deceased in the rubble.

One construction worker was rescued earlier in the day, but another worker still remains trapped. Safety responders are with that worker now and they hope to free him soon.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Capt. Louie Fernandez said Wednesday that getting the construction worker out is going to be a long, tedious effort because there is tons of debris around the person.

Several other workers were injured in this garage collapse which is on the campus of Miami-Dade College.

The five-story parking garage was nearly complete when part of it crumbled to the ground Wednesday.
