CHESTER, Va. (AP) -- Crews have resumed their search of a collapsed retail and residential building in suburban Richmond, Virginia.
Yesterday's collapse left one construction worker dead and another hurt.
The search was halted by rain last night and crews pumped water off the rubble before continuing the search today. The local fire marshall in Chester, Virginia, says that crews had searched more than 90 percent of the building.
A 38-year-old construction worker was killed when a 60-foot section of the building collapsed.
The search effort is expected to be complete this afternoon. Law enforcement will then begin their probe into the collapse.
