Wall collapse

The first responders found that a 10-foot brick retention wall in property's backyard had collapsed, trapping at least two workers underneath.
Authorities say that contractors with WSC Group Inc. had known conditions at the site were highly unsafe, but refused to halt the work.
The collapse happened at the site of a landmarked synagogue which was devastated by a fire in 2017.
The man was not seriously injured.
A civilian complaint from May alleged that the barrier wall was not stable.
Five people were hospitalized, including a baby.
