A second-floor bathroom crashed into the first floor of a Manhattan apartment, taking a man down with it.
Edminio Adame said his son went to the bathroom and called him and said "I fell, I'm dying, come get me."
The adult suffered critical injuries. First responders scoured the building on the corner of 151st Street and Broadway for others, hurt or trapped.
"The search came up negative so at this point, we're confident there was only the one victim," said William Seelig, deputy assistant chief of the New York City Fire Department.
Firefighters say no one was in the first-floor apartment or the basement apartment below when the floor gave way.
The Department of Buildings evacuated all three units impacted but allowed all other residents of the apartment building to remain home.
The man who lives next door to the vacated second-floor apartment says he's not concerned.
"As long as the superstructure is strong I'm not worries about nothing
Firefighters said there were renovations going on in the first-floor apartment but the investigation into the cause of the collapse continues.
