Two people have been taken to hospital after a building’s rooftop parking deck apparently collapsed into an office Thursday afternoon.
BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) says the incident happened near Rupert Street and Lougheed Highway.
A video on Twitter shows the destruction of the building after the apparent collapse. Witness Shirley Mclean said the incident occurred near her office.
