Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Shocking video shows the Hard Rock Hotel site collapse in New Orleans' French Quarter”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Hard Rock Hotel collapsed while under construction Saturday in New Orleans' French Quarter, alarming onlookers as a crane collapsed and dust covered the streets.

Videos and pictures posted to social media showed the aftermath of the tall building collapsing on to the streets, as the fronts of several floors were left falling over the building's entrance. 

However, one video posted by WWL-TV that was taken by a viewer shows the shocking moment when the structure starts to descend into a thick, dusty mass. 

Plans for the property were announced in February 2018 as a mixed residential and hotel 18-story building that was originally scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.

The number and extent of injuries were not immediately clear. Local reporter Ramon Antonio Vargas wrote on Twitter shortly after the incident that "New Orleans EMS says at least 3 people being taken to hospital as a result of this," but their conditions were unknown and more hospitalizations were possible.
