Crews try to stabilize Ohio casino collapse site

A hospital spokesman says a worker who was injured when a floor collapsed at an Ohio casino construction site remains in serious condition a day later as investigators work to figure out what happened.

More than a dozen workers were hurt Friday morning at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati site, where they were pouring a section of concrete floor.

Most of the injured had been treated for bumps and scrapes and released by Saturday afternoon. One man was hospitalized in serious condition.

The Cincinnati Enquirer ( http://cin.ci/yenxpz) reports crews were stabilizing the site Saturday amid investigations by city and workplace safety officials.

The collapse occurred weeks after a similar accident at a Cleveland casino with the same developers. The developers have said there's no link between the two accidents.
