A Myrtle Ave., Brooklyn NY, apartment building collapsed leaving four people injured. The building had been cited by the city for having a crack that ran from the third to the first floor. Though the crack was reported on May 1, 2009, the owner claims it has been there for at least ten years. The building had been undergoing repairs for more than a week and a half. The building shook violently before it collapsed, which alerted the people inside. When the building fell it took down part of the building connected to it and trapped a 10 year old under the rubble. The girl, along with 4 other residents, had sustained bruises, cuts and scrapes but did not suffer any serious injury. Kings County Police report that at least one of the victims was admitted to the Brooklyn Hospital Center.
