BETHESDA, Md. —

Fire and rescue officials say a parking garage that was closed to the public has partially collapsed outside a shopping mall in Bethesda, Md., killing one construction worker and severely injuring another man.

Montgomery County fire spokeswoman Beth Anne Nesselt says rescuers were at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in suburban Maryland Thursday.

Earlier, Assistant Fire Chief Scott Graham said two men were trapped and had severe injuries. Nesselt says one died. Rescuers are trying to free the other.

Officials say it appears a 50,000-pound section of the parking deck collapsed outside the Macy's store.

Graham says rescuers have confirmed there are no other people inside the structure.

The parking deck is under construction and not open to the public.
