Four injured in NY building collapse

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City officials are investigating the collapse of a four-story building Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn that injured four people and led to the evacuation of 6 adjacent buildings.

The building had been cited weeks earlier for cracks that ran from the ground floor to the roof.

One witness told the New York Post that the building "leaned to the right" and then "systematically came down." He says he saw a handful of people flee the building just before it collapsed.

The New York Fire Department says four people had minor injuries.

The building housed a bar on the first floor with apartments above. But nobody else was in the building when it fell.
