An employee was injured during a collapse at a construction site on the campus of Temple University. It appeared to be caused by a steel of a floor that collapsed.
Engineers believe that a connector on the fifth floor failed, causing a steel beam to split from the structure and land on the floor below. The construction worker suffered a leg injury and was taken to the hospital where he is in stable condition.
State inspectors and federal officials will be inspecting the rest of the building.
