HANOVER, Md. — Anne Arundel County officials say one construction worker was killed and another was injured when a 30-foot wall collapsed at the site of a casino being built at Arundel Mills Mall.

Rescue workers were called to the site of the Maryland Live! Casino near the mall in Hanover on Friday morning. Police say one worker was pronounced dead at the scene. The other worker was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

County officials say an inspector from the Department of Inspections and Permits is being sent to the site.
