Reports are saying that officials are planning to release the names of the six victims in yesterday's building collapse later today.

Mayor Michael Nutter in a press conference this morning said a full investigation will be launched to find out what caused the collapse on 22nd and Market streets that killed six people and injured 14.

Late last night, Nutter announced the death toll had risen to six. Shortly after, 61-year-old Myra Plekam, of Kensington, was rescued after being buried under rubble for nearly 12 hours.
