UPDATE: Monday, October 15, 2012

Authorities have found the body of a fourth victim in the rubble of a parking garage that partially collapsed last week at a Florida college.

Miami-Dade County police said Monday the man's body is deep in the unstable rubble and may take several days to remove.

Investigators believe the body is 53-year-old electrician Robert Budhoo. They say positive identification can't be done until the body is removed.

Three other workers were killed when part of the five-story garage collapsed at Miami Dade College's west campus. No students were injured.

The garage was still under construction and not open. Authorities have not yet determined what caused the collapse.

The campus is closed and students are attending classes at temporary locations.

A fire official says one person has been killed in the collapse of a parking garage under construction at a Miami-Dade College campus and that two workers are still trapped.

Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Griselle Marino also says that four people have been taken to the hospital and one is in serious condition. She says three others were treated at the scene.

Marino says they do not believe more than the two workers are trapped.

Authorities said no students were in the area at the time.

Victoria Buczynski works across the street and says the garage "fell to the ground like a house of cards."

TV reports showed one large section of the concrete structure collapsed.
