US-HOTEL-CONSTRUCTION-ACCIDENT

Two construction workers in New Orleans are dead and 18 are injured after the hotel they were working on collapsed.

A search is back underway later this morning for a worker trapped in the rubble. According to NOFD officials, the worker is in an area that has not been safe to access.

The top six floors of the Hard Rock Hotel's French Quarter construction site collapsed Saturday morning.

City emergency management officials say a crane is now in place to help stabilize the remaining structure so search and rescue efforts can continue for the trapped worker.
