Regarding the Philadelphia building collapse, I have been thinking...

does the fact that Sean Benschop, the excavator operator, was Smoking Reefers before the collapse negate the facts that...

(1) there were people not directly associated with the work in a place where the building could fall on them, and

(2) the building being demolished was not fitted with supports to reduce the odds that it would fall on the people who weren't supposed to be close enough to it to get hit by it?

1. (3) The people handling the demolition didn't know what they were doing?

2. the whole job was for 10k way to low for qualified work

 

10k for a demo in a city with very close buildings is way to low if everything is followed correcly and proper engineering studies have been done.
