Saturday 12, 2019, the Hard Rock hotel partially collapsed leaving at least 2 dead and multiple injured.

As of 6 a.m. Wednesday, rescuers are on the search for two construction workers who have not been rescued or recovered. Meanwhile officials say the likely hood of further collapse is high.

The body of one man was recovered Sunday, but  they are still on the search for two more workers in the rubble. They said that one of the men is dead, but are hopeful the other is still alive.

On the other hand it is highly possible that the hotel could collapse more. “The crane that looks damaged, we’ve known about,” McConnell told reporters. “The engineers determined that the other crane is just as risky.”
