BETHESDA, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Police have identified the body of a man killed after being trapped in a parking garage in Bethesda Thursday.
57-year-old Carroll Dexter Wills, of Prince Frederick, was trapped inside a partially collapsed parking garage at Westfield Montgomery Mall, along with one other victim, and was not able to be rescued before succumbing to his injuries after being trapped under a massive concrete slab.
Montgomery County rescuers worked to stabilize the structure for more than four hours to free a second worker. A 50,000-pound section of the parking deck collapsed outside a Macy’s department store.
The other victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, said fire department spokeswoman Beth Anne Nesselt.
