Sign falls onto Center City street, narrowly missing pedestrians - 2019-01-24
A sign fell off a building onto a Center City street and narrowly missed pedestrians Thursday.
Strain called 911 then started snapping pictures. Thursday morning's heavy rain and wind caused the siding of the building to rip off—just missing Strain and a homeless man on sleeping feet away.
"It could have been me and it could have been the innocent guy sleeping there minding his own business," Strain said.
Philadelphia fire crews shut down the sidewalk for the day. The building that's under construction is owned by the Church of Scientology. The Department of Licenses and Inspections tells FOX 29 the needed repairs have already been made.
