Parking deck collapse in Atlanta leaves at least 1 injured

ATLANTA — A parking deck under construction in Atlanta has partially collapsed, officials said Friday. At least one worker was injured.

Video from news helicopters showed an injured worker lowered by crane from the collapsed section of the deck. The worker was lowered in a basket from the site — about nine stories high — to the pavement below.

The collapse involved a prefabricated parking deck under construction in Atlanta’s Midtown section, officials from Atlanta Fire Rescue said in a statement.

Multiple workers were trapped, fire officials said.
