Mayor Michael Nutter among the Dead: Building Collapses In Downtown Philadelphia - 6 Killed

A four-storey building being demolished has collapsed on the edge of downtown Philadelphia, killing six people, officials say.

Mayor Michael Nutter identified one of the dead as a 35-year-old woman but did not release any further information about the others killed in the tragedy.

Rescue crews worked for hours to extricate people trapped amid the rubble inside a Salvation Army thrift store, which was nearly obliterated by falling debris.
