    Small miracle found in rubble - TRACY CONNOR, New York Daily News
    Here's how the upper West Side building collapse unfolded, according to authorities, witnesses and people connected to the site:

    1. Demolition of the one-story former supermarket begins Saturday.

    2. A Bobcat bulldozer with a jackhammer attachment is placed on the roof. About 9:25 a.m. yesterday, the roof and front wall of the building shell collapse - the wall falling outward toward the sidewalk.

    3. A steel beam in the building roof - which was supposed to support the Bobcat - somehow gave way.

    4. Debris rained down, crushing scaffolding and a bus shelter, and injuring five pedestrians, including a 7-month-old girl. A portion of the building's rear wall also fell.
