Cincinnati Construction Collapse

Collapse occurred on what will be the casino's second floor.

Friday, January 27, 2012

CINCINNATI (AP) — A section of floor collapsed Friday at the construction site of a new casino, sending workers tumbling 30 feet to the ground and leaving about a dozen with minor injuries. The collapse comes on the heels of a similar accident last month at a Cleveland casino with the same developer. A crew was pouring a section of concrete floor Friday when an underlying support beam "sheared away," fire Chief Richard Braun said.
