MARYLAND – An accident outside Arundel Mills Mall on Friday morning has left one man dead and another with life-threatening injuries.
A wall collapsed on the victims just outside Arundell Mills Mall on Friday morning.
At around 10:30 a.m., emergency personnel responded to an accident in which a 30-foot concrete wall collapsing on two construction workers as the pre-cast structure was being moved.
One of the victims, a 35-year-old male, was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with life-threatening injuries.
The other victim died at the scene of the accident, and his body still remains trapped under the rubble. Authorities have not released any information on him.
As of 11:30 a.m., emergency crews were waiting for a medical examiner to further determine what happened and were also waiting for help from the “collapse unit,” an engine that can pull the rubble off the victim.
The area where the accident occurred has been closed off for investigation.
This is the second time this month that construction workers have been seriously wounded while working at the site.
Earlier this month, a casino construction worker was hospitalized after a piece of concrete fell on his leg.
The site has been under construction since January.
