One person is dead after a parking garage at a mall in Bethesda, Maryland partially collapsed, according to multiple reports.
The garage at Montgomery Mall on Democracy Boulevard was under renovation when the collapse happened. It was not open to the public at the time, and only construction workers were inside.
The collapse reportedly occurred near construction of a new food court and movie theater.
A local fire department referred to it as a "major structure collapse."
