Oh no! This is so sad!!

A vacant building that was being demolished in Philadelphia collapsed onto a thrift store Wednesday morning, with reports stating that the incident has tragically killed a woman as a result of its destruction.

According to city officials, more than a dozen were stuck under the rubble. Some were even trapped for HOURS!

Fourteen have been rescued and rushed to area hospitals for minor injuries, according to a fire commissioner.

Meanwhile, two search dogs have been brought in to search through the pile for anymore possible victims that could be buried underneath all the rubble.

How utterly tragic! Our heart goes out to Philly today, especially to the friends and family of the reported woman whose life was taken so abruptly.

    I walk by this building just about everyday. They were taking it down from the inside. I noticed when looking in the windows over the past few weeks the roof and the flooring on the upper levels were removed, leaving exposed floor joist. But they did not do anything to brace the 4 story wall that hovered over the 1 story building next to it. I have a feeling that the contractor will be in trouble.
