Concrete Worker Killed In Partial Building Collapse At Cincinnati Construction Site

 Wednesday, November 27, 2019


The Hamilton County Coroner has identified the worker killed after a building partially collapsed in downtown Cincinnati Monday.

The collapse occurred just before 1 p.m. at 151 West Fourth St., near Race Street. The building -- which was under construction at the time -- partially collapsed as crews poured concrete on the building’s seventh floor.

City officials said four people were pulled from the rubble and taken to area hospitals. All four have since been released. A fifth person was treated and released at the scene.

Officials said another person was still believed to be inside, trapped somewhere under debris.

Crews recovered the body under debris Tuesday night, more than 30 hours after the collapse.
