    Philadelphia Building Collapse: Demolition Gone Wrong

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'The scene was very chaotic as I heard one person yell for help and debris from the collapse filled the area at first,' said boskie026, who saw the building fall. 'I wasn't frighted but more shocked.'
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    I was walking down 22nd street in Philadelphia where I saw a building demolition going. But as the crane hit one of the floors the building started falling down but the right wall collapsed on 22nd street as people were walking and crushed the thrift shop and the building behind it. Many were trapped.
