BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Fire and rescue officials say a parking garage that was closed to visitors has partially collapsed outside a shopping mall in Bethesda, Md., and officials say two people are trapped inside.

Montgomery County fire spokeswoman Beth Ann Nesselt says rescuers were at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in suburban Maryland Thursday. Officials say it appears a section of the parking deck collapsed outside the Macy's store.

Assistant Fire Chief Scott Graham says two adults are trapped and have severe injuries that could be life threatening.

The parking deck is under construction and not open to the public.

Video from the scene showed a large concrete slab that appears to have fallen out of place.
