3 injured in building collapse in South Philadelphia
SOUTH PHILADELPHIA - August 22, 2011 (WPVI) -- Three workers are hospitalized after a 3-story building collapsed Monday morning in South Philadelphia.
The collapse happened just before 7:00 a.m. on the 700 block of S. 15th Street.
The workers were on scaffolding when the 3-story brick building collapsed. Police said a 40-year-old man suffered head, neck and back injuries and was hospitalized in serious condition.
Two other workers, ages 28 and 41, were being treated at a hospital for minor injuries. The same building suffered a partial collapse last Wednesday. The Red Cross is currently helping the tenants of the apartment building.
