MIAMI (AP) - A section of a parking garage under construction at a Miami-Dade College campus collapsed Wednesday and a fire official said some workers were trapped in the rubble.
Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue Lt. Arnold Piedrahita told WSVN-TV that some workers could be heard calling for help inside the rubble shortly after the multistory garage caved in. It was not clear how many were trapped.
"We need to find out where the people are. We can't just start digging through concrete," he said.
Television reports also showed several workers being treated by paramedics at the scene.
Authorities said no students were in the area at the time.
The garage was being built at the campus in the western part of the county. TV reports showed one large section of the concrete structure collapsed.
