Only two people known to be dead so far. No biggy.
Marinakos had signed off on demoltion permits to take down the Market Street structure which directly abutted a Salvation Army Thrift store. The building collapsed mid-demolition, trapping people in the adjacent store under debris. A spokesmen for Marinakos said the architect had served as only as an expediter for the city permitting process and had apparently never actually seen any blueprints for the demolition plan he endorsed.

Mr. Marinakos, reached at his office in the Spring Garden neighborhood, said he "couldn't talk right now".
