2 dead at Amazon warehouse

A 50-foot wall at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Baltimore collapsed Friday night as a storm hit the area.

One man found under the debris was pronounced dead Friday night at a hospital, and a second body was discovered around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Chief Roman Clark said.

The names of the victims have not yet been disclosed and it is unknown if they were Amazon employees or contractors.

Not other injuries were reported.

“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,” said Brandon McBride, an Amazon employee. “It just sounded like bombs were dropping everywhere. The whole side [of the building] was just dropping.”
