MIAMI (AP) -- Rescue workers have freed a construction worker trapped in the rubble for about 12 hours after a parking garage collapsed at a Florida college. He was brought to a hospital, but his condition was not immediately known.

Members of the Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue team hauled the unidentified man out on a stretcher about 1 a.m. and placed him in an ambulance, which whisked him away from the ruins of the garage at the campus of Miami Dade College West.

The roof of the five-story garage collapsed Wednesday afternoon while still under construction, killing two workers.

At least eight other workers were hurt when garage fell, creating a pancake-style collapse.

No students were in the area at the time.
