Hard Rock recovery underway…

Demolition of New Orleans’ Hard Rock hotel commences.

A little over nine months after the Hard Rock hotel construction site partially collapsed in the New Orleans French Quarter a move to remove the bodies of two of the men who perished in the collapse has finally gained steam.

New Orleans Fire Chief Tim McConnell said that the work to retrieve the remains of construction workers Quinnyon Wimberly and Jose Ponce Arreola has started, with hopes that the first victim’s remains could be out by week’s end.
