October 04, 2017 05:55PM

The owner of a discount store at the Mall at Cross County in Yonkers, where a rooftop parking deck collapsed earlier this year, is suing the landlord for $5 million. The roof fell in on Jan. 11 when a contractor was using heavy machinery in an area with a weight restriction, the Westchester Business Journal reported. The Bobcat machine fell into the store, National Wholesale Liquidators, and five people were injured. The lawsuit filed in Westchester Supreme Court alleges that AAC Cross County Mall ignored structural problems and the roof work was being done without a permit. [WBJ]
