I think they are taking down the building next to the Salvation Army store on the corner and the wall from the building collapsed onto the store. Myfoxphilly. Com has pictures.
My sister was 3 buildings over. She thought it was an earthquake
I had a cheesesteak for lunch. I could've been killed!
Didn't trash enough buildings.
I was only 30mi away! I could of been killed!
I walked near a salvation army store once. Still have a shitty life.
At least you opted for butter on your bagel this morning instead of cream cheese.
Feets don't fail me now...
I was in a building when this happened. I don't even want to think about how to close I came to death.
I was 1222.46 miles from there, shit that was a close call!
This story gets better. The back hoe operator allegedly had
traces of marijuana in his system and was taking percocet
because he had a broken arm in a cast.
Is there a level for pot to be considered high? Or is it just positive for it in your blood and urine? If the guy had a script for the percocet...I know there is an acceptable level that a person can have in their system for pain management and be considered ok....seen it in numerous car accident cases.
One in particular was a woman who crashed her Miata into a telephone pole by the local mall. Had Blowouts to both ankles. Had a pharmacy of pain scripts in her bag, all legal. Positive for percodan. Never charged with with anything.
For heavy equipment operation, there's often a zero tolerance policy for any drug (prescription included). It's often much stricter than driving a car.
He was operating it with one arm in a cast, on painkillers
and was smoking grass. I think that might be a problem.
Well yeah....but why did his employer allow it? 1 arm in a sling??? Looks to me like it requires 2 arms functional to perform the job.
Prolly because he and his boss are nig[bong].
Hmmm wonder why the FBI is there... at least I think that is an FBI badge. Hudson
Even with all his problems, he manages to give a "thumbs-up" sign.
He should have been a black hoe operator instead.
I don't like this pot stuff. There is no blood test that can determine if you are high.
That's his son.
The AP is reporting that the inspector who inspected the building before it collapsed last week has committed suicide.
Yes he did. No word yet on if he left a note.
