A seven-story building under construction at Temple University in Pennsylvania partially collapsed on July 11th, leaving at least one worker hospitalized with injuries. According to a spokesman for the University, the collapse occurred when a broken connector caused a fifth-floor beam to fall to the fourth floor. Several other workers were trapped on upper stories before eventually being rescued by emergency personnel.
