More than 100 rescuers on Wednesday rushed to the scene of a partially-built parking garage that collapsed on the campus of a Miami school, trapping workers inside, officials said.
Cries for help could be heard from inside the rubble of the structure being built on the campus of Miami-Dade College West, officials said.
“We have multiple victims trapped inside,” Cristina Armand, a spokeswoman for Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue, told the Los Angeles Times.
One person had been taken to a hospital, she said. There were no reports of fatalities so far, Armand added.
Images streaming on the website of WSVN-TV showed workers carrying some people to waiting vehicles.
The four-story garage, which was under construction, collapsed about 11:40 a.m., Armand said. She said it was a “pancake” collapse, meaning the structure fell from the top down. Televised images showed a large section of concrete on the ground.
