MILFORD - Survivors of a Milford partial building collapse are telling their story.

It happened yesterday morning on Woodmont Road.

Carlos Diaz was one of four people who crawled to safety after the building came down.

"We were trapped. We were going to stay there but then I felt pressure coming from the gas line. We found an opening and just got out."

Thirty people were inside the building at the time of the collapse. Two of them were taken to the hospital.

Inspectors are still trying to determine if the Milford warehouse, which houses three businesses, needs to be torn down.
