Parking Garage Collapses at Md. Mall, 1 Killed

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:18 PM EDT

A parking garage has partially collapsed outside a shopping mall in suburban Maryland, and officials say one man who was trapped has died.

Montgomery County rescuers were called to the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda just before 2 p.m. Thursday. Officials say it appears a section of the parking deck collapsed outside the Macy's store.

Fire Department spokeswoman Beth Anne Nesselt says one man died. Rescuers are trying to free another man who has serious injuries.

Assistant Fire Chief Scott Graham says rescuers have confirmed there are no other people inside the parking structure.

The parking deck was under construction at the time of the collapse and was not open to the public.

Video from the scene showed a large concrete slab that appears to have fallen out of place.
