Pier Collapse

Three women were killed on Thursday, May 18 in the collapse of a 140-foot portion of pier 34 on the Delaware River in Philadelphia. They were killed when patrons and employees, engaged in early evening socializing at the nightclub “heat”, located on the end of the 91-year-old pier, were hurled into the chilly river along with the collapsing pier and the nightclub’s debris. Thirty-six were injured, nine seriously.
