First lawsuit filed over Philadelphia building collapse

Inspectors are now investigating whether unsafe demolition practices caused the accident

Well, that was fast. One day after a Philadelphia building collapse that killed six and trapped another 14 people alive, a survivor has filed the first lawsuit over the accident.

Nadine White, who was reportedly buried under debris when the four-story building collapsed, is seeking more than $50,000 in damages from the building’s owner, STB Investments Corp., and the contractor responsible for its demolition, Nicetown House Development Corp.
