IN THE THIRD building collapse this week, two construction workers were injured yesterday morning when a North Philadelphia rowhouse crumbled, temporarily trapping them inside.
The incident came three days after two other buildings crumbled in other parts of the city.
On Tuesday, a wall in a Frankford church at Griscom and Orthodox streets collapsed; the church, which no longer hosted religious services, was used as a gathering place for community groups. That night, part of a three-story apartment building collapsed on 15th Street near Clymer in South Philadelphia, smashing a car parked curbside.
