New Orleans city officials have set a tentative date to remove the bodies of the two workers trapped inside the collapsed Hard Rock Hotel.

That recovery could begin as early as July 13, according to Nola.com.

A spokesman for the city said in a press briefing on Tuesday that crews have finished taking down three buildings that surround the hotel and are currently assembling cranes to work on the building itself.

Crews could begin working on the hotel by Monday, and officials expect that it could take four to five days before the remains of the two workers are removed.
