Do boarding ramps to floating casinos have gusset plates?
A board ramp to the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana (the one for which you can see billboards every tenth of a mile over much of I-90 in Western Indiana), collapsed today, sending several workers into the water.
The worker said they were all wearing life jackets. The worker said the water is about 18 feet deep where the ramp is.
The Horseshoe was closed at the time of the incident in preparation for the grand opening of the new casino, according to its Web site.
The casino issued a statement saying a “full engineering review” is underway.
