Investigators are trying to determine whether construction at a bridal shop was to blame for the collapse of a building in central Arkansas.

A 2-year-old girl was killed and at least six other people were injured Monday in Morrilton, about 50 miles northwest of Arkansas.

Firefighters used everything from backhoes to their bare hands to search through what was left the two-story brick building. It also housed a cosmetic store.

Brian Matthews owns an auto detailing shop nearby. He said he was among those who rushed over and saw a trapped woman screaming, "My baby is still inside."

He and a few men pulled bricks and wood off the woman while others search for the child. Matthews said the girl's body was lifeless when rescuers found her.
