Workers Hurt At Casino Site

A collapsing floor at the site of the Horseshoe casino which injured 12 construction workers echoes Cleveland accident six weeks ago.

Approximately 12 construction workers were injured last week when a floor collapsed on the site of the Horseshoe casino in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. Three of the four workers who received fractures and other bone injuries in the accident will need an operation.

The collapse happened just six weeks after a similar incident at the Horseshoe casino in Cleveland. Although work has begun on the site again, doubt remains whether construction will finish in time for the proposed spring 2013 opening.

Rock Caesars is the developer responsible for the development of both the Cincinnati and the Cleveland Horseshoe casinos and have stated that there is no connection between the two accidents.

Cincinnati’s Horseshoe casino will offer almost 2000 slots games and about 85 table games. The casino will also have a stunning World Series Poker room, a restaurant and a large amusement area
