Fatal accident at casino construction site in Hanover
A collapsing wall of the new Maryland Live! Casino has resulted in one man death. The accident at the building zone also seriously injured another construction worker. Firemen
and police determined that a 25-ton concrete wall had fallen down at the construction area.
The collapsing wall hit a construction hoist in which Leon Ray Sax (27) was at the time of incident. He didn’t survive the accident. Another building worker, Darwin Suazo-Jimenez (25), was critically injured. Suazo-Jimenez was threatened at a nearby hospital.
25-ton concrete wall
Rescue workers utilized a crane to remove the 25-ton concrete wall, after which Sax’s body was taken to a medical examiner center. Safety and health officers investigated the building area, which was provisionally closed down. Authorities could not reveal when building would resume.
4,750 one-armed bandits
The opening of the new Maryland Live! Casino is scheduled for late 2012. The new gambling parlor will offer approximately 4,750 one-armed bandits. Building activities started earlier this year at the construction site next to Arundel Mills shopping centre.
