 Monday, January 30, 2012


Part of a casino under construction in downtown Cincinnati collapsed on Friday as workers poured concrete, injuring 10 people, none critically, in the second construction accident at an Ohio casino project in the past six weeks. Workers were pouring concrete on the second story of the planned Horseshoe casino when part of the floor collapsed onto the floor below. The cause was undetermined, fire and casino officials said. Ten workers were transported to hospitals with injuries ranging from bumps and bruises to possible fractures, Cincinnati Fire Chief Richard Braun said.
