ATLANTA — A woman was killed Saturday afternoon in southeast Atlanta as a demolition team tore down a house.
Witnesses said the woman was inside the home when the building began crumbling around her.
Residents in the area told Channel 2’s Tony Thomas the demolition crew began working from the back toward the front.
Neighbors said they had wanted the house torn down for years. Then they said they heard the cry for help.
Through the afternoon, Atlanta firefighters combed through the debris, making sure there is no one else trapped underneath the rubble. They would find no one else.
Neighbors told Thomas about an hour into the demolition workers heard a cry.
Robert Elliott was the first to arrive at the demolished house. “Me and some other people cleared right here,” Elliot said. “I was watching the backhoe turn and as he turned I heard a woman moan.”
