A Rock Gaming casino under construction in Cincinnati collapsed while the construction crew was pouring a floor on the second story. Fortunately, no one died.

I saw that on the news... this is terrible for Horseshoe and ROC. I guarantee you that they are doing their best to minimize what happened, as Cleveland is set to open up in the next few months.

In fact, their website via Horseshoe doesn't even have a press release up about it. Granted, Horseshoe is just the managing partner, but you'd think that people would want to know what happened.

And what is even more bizarre, there was a similar incident
while working on the parking garage at the one in Cleveland
a month or two ago.

someone is going to get fired for that. If they deviated from design the site engineer is to blame, if not the design engineer is in big trouble. any more links?

It takes a real slow day for something like this to be newsworthy.

Or a really fantastic PR department to keep it from being a HUGE news story.

A parking garage construction incident with no casualties or injuries? Buildings under construction are held up by a fraction of their design support, a certain failure rate is anticipated. Maybe it got news coverage because it's related to a casino, IDK.

The same day, December 16, 2011, there was a number of other constriction incidents, some with injuries and possibly fatalities.
Here's a glimpse into accidents around that time.
