Multiple workers were taken to the hospital Friday after being trapped under slabs of concrete when part of an Atlanta parking garage collapsed during construction, officials say.
The garage located at West Peachtree Street and Linden Avenue had been under construction when the pre-fabricated concrete had collapsed, knocking out a corner of the building and taking down several floors, said Sgt. Cortez Stafford of the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department.
