SEPTA releases footage of building collapse

We're getting a new, first hand look at a deadly building collapse in Center City Philadelphia.

SEPTA released bus surveillance video Thursday.

The accident at 22nd and Market Streets from back in June happened when a building being demolished collapsed onto the neighboring Salvation Army thrift store.

Six people were killed in the accident.

SEPTA shared this video with investigators but this is the first time the public has seen it.

The man behind the demolition equipment at the time of accident, Sean Benschop, has since been charged with 6 counts of manslaughter.
