14th survivor pulled from Philadelphia building collapse rubble at least 6 people killed

A vacant building being demolished collapsed onto a thrift store in Philadelphia early Wednesday, killing six people and trapping more than a dozen under rubble, officials said.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said late Wednesday night the deceased were five women and a man, but did not release additional information.

Soon after he spoke, a 61-year-old woman buried under the debris was pulled out alive and taken to a local hospital, said Michael Reznik, the public safety director for the city said.

Search and rescue crews continued to search for victims into the night.
