Search ends for survivors of Philadelphia building collapse

Today Mayor Michael Nutter told ABC News that the search for survivors in the Philadelphia building collapse has ended. Six people died in the building collapse and rescue efforts lasted more than thirty hours.  Several of the people who died were in the Salvation Army when the building next to it collapsed.  Fourteen people were pulled from the rubble and survived the ordeal.  

An investigation is continuing as to whether there were complaints about the condition of the worksite.  News reports have indicated that complaints were made to the City of Philadelphia about the condition of the worksite in the weeks prior to the collapse.  

The property is apparently owned by STB Investments of New York City.
