There are also two structural engineers on the scene as well as 60 contracting employees assisting on recovery efforts. Riggers are preparing to lift portions of the collapse, although recovery efforts will be paused this evening. Other preparation work may continue. There is not an estimated time of recovery, however, an update will be provided once this begins. The collapse is isolated to one interior stairwell and the structural integrity of the building is intact. Three confirmed fatalities and one injured worker transported in stable condition to a hospital.
