Four people are dead after a building collapsed in downtown Philadelphia.

The collapse at 2140 Market Street happened around 10:40 a.m. when a four-story building came down on top of a two-story building, which housed a Salvation Army Thrift Store. Early reports from Philadelphia Police indicate that the collapse may have been the result of an industrial accident, as construction crews were working on the nearby structure.


One woman was found dead and 13 people were rescued from the rubble during the day. Crews continued to dig with the help of search dogs to see if anyone else remained trapped beneath the rubble. They found three more bodies in the rubble Wednesday night but have not yet confirmed their identities.
