The four story building sat in a gutted state, right next to a Salvation Army thrift store location. When it collapsed at around 10:45, it fell into the thrift store, killing some of the people inside.
Fire fighters worked through the night to pull up debris and search for survivors in the wreckage. Their efforts uncovered what is believed to be the last missing person from the collapse a few minutes before midnight.
Philadelphia residents claim the work being done on the abandoned building was poor, but did not appear to be in violation of any building codes. The collapse is also being investigated by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration.
