A New Jersey fire official says no one is trapped under the rubble from a parking garage that partly collapsed after a glass canopy fell from a high-rise condominium building.
Deputy Fire Chief Steve Kalman told reporters Saturday morning that rescuers dug through debris to reach the cars feared to contain occupants, but no one was inside. He says the rescue mission has been called off.
The three-story garage in Hackensack pancaked Friday morning when the canopy fell on it. Rescuers needed to clear debris and shore up the structure before attempting a rescue.
Using a remote camera and a robot, rescuers had earlier reported seeing a person in a car on the first level down. Kalman didn't immediately explain the discrepancy.
