One of the biggest tragedies of the US city in living memory, the tragedy occurred Wednesday morning and by Thursday morning search-and-rescue workers had covered about 75 per cent of the site, Mayor Michael Nutter told reporters.
Search of the rest of the site was on till reports last came in.
The accident was caused as shoppers thronged the Salvation Army thrift store on a busy Wednesday morning.
The store crumbled under the weight of a next door building that was under demolition as an excavation crew ripped walls down allegedly jerking down a wrong beam with heavy machinery.
Bystanders rushed to help as blocks and bricks came crashing down.

She was the 14th survivor of the accident who were all taken to three area hospitals.
