Bronx building vestibule collapses
Residents of a Bronx apartment building say poor maintenance led to the collapse of their entryway early Monday.
The collapse happened at 2734 Bainbridge Avenue in Bedford Park.
The Department of Buildings' website shows there are no outstanding violations and only two complaints against the building. But residents say problems with the building run rampant.
There's no word on what caused the collapse.
The fire chief at the scene says temporary repairs were put in place to allow people in and out of the building.
Three people were taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital with minor injuries.
