Fla. concrete garage collapse injures 14
by UPI

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One person was missing and 14 others injured early Thursday in the collapse of a six-story concrete garage under construction in Jacksonville, Fla.

Jacksonville Fire-Rescue spokesman Tom Francis told reporters workers were pouring concrete on the upper level around 6 a.m. when the structure gave way, WJXT-TV, Jacksonville, reported.

"The good news is that none of the injures of those people who have been transported ... none of those appear to be traumatic," Francis said. "Most of those are stable, non-critical injuries."

Nine others were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

A WJXT reporter working on an unrelated story across the St. Johns River from the scene heard what he described as sounding like an implosion, then saw a plume of smoke rising from the area.

Rescue workers were trying to clear debris in the search for the unidentified missing worker, officials said.
