    Person Trapped in Collapsed N.J. Parking Garage

    A glass canopy fell off of a high-rise condominium building and onto a parking garage two stories below on Friday, partly flattening the structure and trapping at least one person, authorities said. Rescuers can see the victim but can't get to the person because they are concerned about the possibility of another collapse at the three-story garage, Hackensack fire Lt. Stephen Lindner said. They could not determine the victim's condition.

    Respectfully snipped:
    [I] Snipped from your link Lizzybeth:
    Resident Chris Baldo told local television station News 12 that he was in his first-floor unit when he heard "rumbling that sounded like an earthquake or a plane, like something hit the building."

    Irene Casapulla, who lives on the second floor, said she heard "a bunch of thumping, and all of a sudden it sounded like an earthquake."


    How wierd is it that we are hearing the word "earthquake" again today?!?

    They were able to retrieve the car, but it they're not saying whether there was anyone in it or not. I wonder why?

    Apparently there was no one trapped in the rubble.
