MIAMI - Authorities say a second person has died in the collapse of a parking garage under construction at a community college in Florida.

Roy Rutland of the Miami-Dade Police Department says the second body was discovered Wednesday. A construction worker is also still trapped in the rubble.

That worker is stuck inside a vehicle. Officials say a paramedic and a doctor are with him and it may take hours - or possibly days - to rescue him.

At least 10 other workers were hurt when the roof of the five-story concrete garage fell on the campus of Miami-Dade College.

Officials are working to determine whether anyone else is missing.
