(Updated: 4:01 p.m. and 4:50 p.m.) A three-story Williamsburg residential building injured five workers — one seriously — when it collapsed today just before 1:30 p.m., trapping as many as three people under the rubble.

The brick building, at 34 Conselyea Street near Union and Metropolitan avenues, is owned by 34 Conselyea Street LLC, headed by Lucille Maundrell, mother of aptsandlofts.com President David Maundrell. While David has done work on the property in the past, he said he is no longer affiliated with 34 Conselyea Street LLC.

The building appeared to have been under construction, Frank Dwyer, a spokesperson for the Fire Department of New York, said.

The four with minor injuries were taken to Elmhurst Hospital; the person in critical condition was taken to Bellevue. Three of the five had been trapped, Dwyer said, although it wasn’t clear which three. The search is still ongoing, but no one else is believed to be inside, he added.

The incident was first reported by WABC and Fox NY.
