2 men dead in Baltimore Amazon warehouse collapse


By Sommer Brokaw, UPI

Baltimore firefighters found a second man dead Saturday from the Amazon warehouse collapse Friday night in southeast Baltimore.

Chief Roman Clark said in a Baltimore Sun report a 50-foot wall at the Amazon Fulfillment Center collapsed Friday night as a storm hit the area.

One man found under the debris was pronounced dead Friday night at a hospital, Clark said. The dead body of a second, unaccounted for man was found around 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

The names of the victims have not yet been disclosed.

It's unknown if they were Amazon employees or contractors, Clark said.

Not other injuries were reported.

Brandon McBride, an Amazon employee, described the chaotic scene Friday night to WBAL-TV.

"I was standing inside the building and me and one of the facilities dudes were talking, and I went to the left side of the building and he went to the right, and all of a sudden, we just heard these loud noises. The power shut off. It was just crazy inside," McBride said. "It just sounded like bombs were dropping everywhere. The whole side [of the building] was just dropping."

With severe storms and strong winds sweeping through Maryland Friday evening, the National Weather Service is investigating whether a tornado touched down during the storms, WBAL-TV reported.

"Severe weather damaged one of our facilities in Baltimore City," Amazon spokeswoman Rachael Lighty said in a statement to the TV station. "Our thoughts go out to all families impacted by this [Friday] evening's severe weather."
