    My brother and his boss were the two trapped in the collapsed building. They got them out in about an hour and my brother is fine his boss has a broken leg and pelvis which I understand was the worst of the injuries. The building collapsed in just as he dove into a bathroom and the toilet and sink were the only thing that staopped the walls from falling in on top of him. They are lucky to be alive!
