2nd worker dies after Dutch stadium roof collapse

Dutch authorities say a second worker has died of injuries sustained when the roof of a soccer stadium partially collapsed during construction work.

The municipality of Enschede says in a statement that a 24-year-old died Friday afternoon. A 31-year-old man died Thursday during the accident at FC Twente's Grolsch Veste stadium.

Five other workers remain hospitalized.

Enschede Mayor Peter den Oudsten says it is "terrible that we must again mourn a fatality."

Police have launched a criminal investigation.
