PHILADELPHIA - City documents show a Philadelphia demolition contractor racked up several violations at the site where a wall collapsed onto an adjacent store, killing six people.
The city is releasing some documents related to the June 5 collapse, which is the subject of several investigations.
Demolition subcontractor Sean Benschop is charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly operating heavy equipment while impaired.
The documents show that contractor Griffin Campbell had been cited for starting interior demolition before informing the city, and for having asbestos-laden material in a trash container. Campbell allegedly told the inspector someone had discarded the material into his truck.
The records show that asbestos has since been found at the site, despite a pre-demolition pledge the buildings were asbestos free.
Campbell's lawyer did not immediately return a message Friday.
