One person is dead and three are still missing after part of the Hard Rock hotel, which is under construction, in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana collapsed.
According to authorities, multiple injuries have been reported after the upper six floors of the structure collapsed Saturday morning around 9:14 a.m. 18 people have been transported to a local hospital but are reportedly in stable condition.
"This remains a very fluid and dangerous situation and every few minutes something is falling," Gov. John Bel Edwards said, warning people to stay away.
"It's still a very dangerous situation," the New Orleans Fire Department Chief Tim McConnell added. "The crane is still in place but it is unsupported and very dangerous. We are in the process of evacuating the buildings in the perimeter."
The incident was caught on video.

"It sounded like a — I don't know how to describe it — like a building coming down," said witness Matt Worges. "It looked like the concrete just slid from the top all the way down to the street. The concrete just started to slide down the side."
