PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — A male and his dog were inside their property in Philadelphia’s Tioga-Nicetown neighborhood when it partially collapsed early Sunday early morning, law enforcement claimed.
It transpired all-around 5 a.m. in the 1900 block of Bonitz road around Clarissa Avenue.
Authorities say Dennis Myers and his pet ended up inside sleeping when the residence started to crumble.
“I was sleeping and my puppy was sleeping beside me. Then the cops came in, grabbed me and grabbed my dog,” recalled Myers. “They claimed, ‘Your residence fell.’ I claimed, ‘Huh? What?’ I looked up and said, ‘Oh no, I’m not staying below.'”
Myers and his canine ended up equipped to escape without any injuries.
A neighboring house was also evacuated.
As he assessed his residence in the daylight, Myers recognized how close he was to death.
“Thank God I did not. Praise the lord I am out,” Myers said.
As investigators attempt to establish what took place and if the dwelling can be saved, Myers suggests he thinks it could have been because of to a water leak and exterior bricks that have been never repaired.
“There was a automobile incident, it strike my wall a thirty day period back and bricks started off slipping,” Myers claimed.
