Beloved grandfather's body pulled from collapsed Hard Rock hotel

  Beloved grandfather's body pulled from collapsed Hard Rock hotel A family holding vigil outside the site of the Hard Rock hotel construction collapse received the news they hoped they’d never hear. Anthony Magrette’s body was pulled from the rubble, according to his wife, Nova Magrette. She tells WWL-TV that she identified his body at the Orleans Parish Coroner’s office on Sunday night.
