CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say at least four people have been injured in Cincinnati after part of a building under construction collapsed.

Cincinnati Fire Chief Roy Winston said they were on the structure’s fifth floor were injured when part of the building collapsed Monday afternoon after workers on the sixth floor started pouring concrete.

Turner Construction Company said four workers were treated and released. One worker remains missing.

We’re hoping for a miracle. We are preparing for not, unfortunately,” said Hamilton County Coroner Lakshmi Sammarco.

The structure resides on a construction site and isn’t accessible to the public.

Ron Howard, property manager of the building across the street, described the collapse as sounding like a “bunch of mud, metal crashing, timber falling.”
