2 dead, 1 missing after Hard Rock construction collapse

Not to deter or belittle the loss of 1? life from this real accident, but just bringing up a point that this is the way large buildings go down when a true accident happens,just a friggin mess, haphazardly different levels of stress, not a symmetrical decline, hell, in that very first few sec's of footage, what did ya see??...a tall chunk of building actually falling over and covering some major horizontal yardage, glad to see the genuine laws of physics actually being applied to a building like it's supposed to when shit goes bad... Then look at the tragic "Death Toll" of this horrible travesty....  ONE, that alone spells R-E-A-L

that 3 part phony Act of "Terrorism" performed LIVE, in front of a live World Studio Audience, Starring Israel, The Saudi's, the dual citizenship PNAC crowd, and the Cheney Administration they performed 18 years ago should now be more prevalent than ever!!  

Emergency officials have suspended search and rescue missions Saturday night after a partial building collapse at the Hard Rock Hotel construction site in New Orleans.

According to emergency medical services officials, two people are dead, one person is missing, and 18 have been taken to an area hospital for treatment.

.@NOLAFireDept: building is unstable. Further collapse of the building is possible. There’s a HUGE crane hanging, that weighs several tons. That’s the fear right now @wdsu

.@NewOrleansEMS 19 people treated; 18 taken to the hospital. They’re all stable @wdsu #HardRockCollapse

According to NOFD officials, the person who remains missing in the building is in an area that is unsafe to access at this time.

The body of the second person was was reported missing was located in the building, but has not been removed at this time due to safety concerns.

The NOFD said that a further collapse of the building is a strong possibility.

One crane should arrive Saturday night to help support the building overnight, and a second crane should arrive Sunday morning, according to NOFD.

A press conference is scheduled for Sunday morning tentatively at 10 a.m.


The city of New Orleans said the frame of the building is considered stable but is unsupported, therefore the situation is considered dangerous and mandatory evacuations have been issued.

Wow. I'm glad if I make a mistake, the worst thing that happens is a bathroom floods. Although, yeah, if I wire something badly, the house could burn down.  In any case, remember the residential skyscraper that burned for 24 hours and never fell. For my money, Judy Wood and John Hutchison explain 9/11 very neatly/.
