Two people have died and a third remains trapped after an under-construction Hard Rock Hotel partially collapsed Saturday in New Orleans.
New Orleans Fire Chief Timothy McConnell said rescue teams are unable to locate the trapped individual inside the building.
"We have first responders going into a very dangerous building right now, trying to do their job," a spokesperson for New Orleans Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness said at a press conference Saturday. "Please keep them in your thoughts."
The collapse sent 18 people to local hospitals, according to EMS Director Emily Nichols. The victims transported for treatment were now "all stable."
