Worker's body removed from Cincinnati construction site

CINCINNATI — After a search-and-recover effort that lasted more than a day, Cincinnati firefighters on Tuesday night located and removed the body of a construction worker who had become trapped in a half-collapsed, half-finished downtown parking garage the day before.

Cincinnati City Manager Patrick Duhaney broke the news to members of City Council in an email.

“The heart of the City of Cincinnati goes out to the family and friends of the deceased,” he wrote. “This is a truly a sad day for our City. I cannot imagine the grief this family must be going through at this time.”
