On Monday afternoon, October 5, 2020, a building under construction partially collapsed near the CityCentre in Houston, resulting in 3 dead and 1 injured. The tragic incident occurred at the One MRO Project Building, which was announced earlier this year by Marathon Oil, in the 990 block of Town and Country Boulevard, near the intersection of Interstate 10 and Beltway 8.
According to KHOU-11, a rescue team is searching to make sure no one else is inside, but officials said they believe everyone has been accounted for.
According to Click2Houston, a construction worker at the scene said he was on the ground floor when the collapse happened. He said it appeared that several floors of a stairwell may have collapsed.
The injured was taken to a nearby hospital with an unknown condition.
