For the second time in less than two months a collapse has occurred at one of Ohio's new casino construction sites.
The latest collapse occurred Friday morning in Cincinnati and resulted in at least 20 people being injured, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Many sustained minor injuries and have already been released from hospitals.
According to a statement released by Rock Gaming LLC, a single bay of the facility collapsed as concrete was being poured for the building's second floor.
"A full investigation by Rock Ohio Caesars Construction Team, OHSA, City building inspectors, and the Cincinnati Fire Department is now underway to determine the cause of this morning's collapse of a 60'x 60' bay within the casino facility," the statement said.
In December of last year, a similar collapse occurred at the construction site for the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland, which was also being developed by Rock Gaming LLC.
In that incident, a portion of a parking deck being constructed near the casino caved in as concrete was being poured, Channel 5 News reported.
No one was injured in the collapse, and construction activities resumed later the same day with permission from the City of Cleveland and OSHA.
