  • WWL-TV shows the scene after a large portion of the Hard Rock Hotel which is under construction suddenly collapsed Oct. 12 2019 in New Orleans

One person died in a massive Hard Rock Hotel construction site collapse, three people are missing and 18 have been hospitalized Saturday, WDSUreports.

"It was a deep rumbling sound", Matt Worges, who saw the collapse from a nearby building, told The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate. It showed what looked like a metal structure - part of the building or a piece of construction equipment - tumbling to the ground and people running from the scene as clouds of dust billowed up and around the streetcar, obscuring the view like a thick fog. He said the building was still unstable, but firefighters rescued several people from inside.

McConnell told reporters that it's still a very unsafe situation and another collapse is possible. A crane that was dislodged during the collapse is still in place but unsupported, according to officials.

"It's still a very risky situation", he said.

Todt regrette la course à l'information autour de Schumacher
Début septembre dernier, Michael Schumacher a été hospitalisé à l'Hôpital européen Georges-Pompidou, à Paris. C'était lors d'une cérémonie dans le paddock Ferrari qui soulignait la 100e course en F1 de Shumacher.

Video shows the moment that the top floors of the building - which has been under construction for the last several months - came crashing down onto Basin Street at around 9am. Hard Rock International had originally planned to open the 18-story hotel in the spring of 2019, but its opening was pushed back to the spring of 2020.

The new hotel is located on Canal Street, a major route through the centre of the city, and also a popular tourist destination. One former theater hadn't been touched since before Hurricane Katrina hit the city.

Gov. John Bel Edwards confirmed the fatality to reporters near the scene, saying there were several people unaccounted for. "And I think we should all be very thankful that pedestrians and motorists on the street were all able to get out safely".

"This is obviously a very, very serious collapse", the governor said.
