A search is underway for two people after a Hard Rock Hotel under construction in New Orleans partially caved in this morning.

At least one person died and more than a dozen others were injured when the top floors of an 18-story construction project collapsed downtown.

Crews working at the site say they are concerned that other parts of the building may fall, and that is hampering efforts to find the two missing people.
