UPDATE: NBC is reporting one person was killed in the building collapse in Philadelphia today.  13 more were injured and taken to the hospital.

 

A dozen people have already been found under the building and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Officials believe there may be one or two still trapped.

 

The collapse of the four story building is being blamed on a industrial accident.  Construction was taking place next to the building and may have contributed to the collapse.

All nearby streets are closed off as rescue workers continue to look for people in the rubble. Watch live coverage from NBC Philadelphia:
