The top floor of the building came crashing down this morning, breaking the leg of one laborer, while injuring another. Both were tended to by emergency personal while firemen carefully walked through the structure in search of any other occupants.

A large crowd gathered to watch as Mayor Nir Barkat, accompanied by other officials, arrived to survey the scene.
