A settlement has been reached in the deadly 2013 Center City building collapse that killed 6 and injured 13 at the Salvation Army thrift store at 22nd and Market. The settlement is worth $227 million and will be paid out to 19 plaintiffs including the families of those who died. The settlement agreement was reached on Wednesday while the jury in the case was still out deliberating the damages. On January 31st, the same jury found that all five defendants shared a portion of the blame and should pay damages. They include the Salvation Army, building owner Richard Basciano, Philadelphia architect Plato Marinakos, Jr, contractor Griffin Campbell, and excavator operator Sean Benschop. The jury placed most of the liability on the Salvation Army. The SA said in a statement, "Our deepest sympathy remains with the victims and their families through this extremely difficult time. We pray for the healing of our community." There is no word on how the $227 million will be paid between the defendants or distributed amongst the plaintiffs.

Bond died on Monday afternoon. No had seen him take a hit to the head during the game but the Philadelphia Medical Examiner said he died from blunt force trauma. His death has been ruled accidental.
