AP reports -- Officials have recovered two bodies after starting to dismantle a partially collapsed Ontario mall. The renewed rescue effort came after angry residents shouted down fears that the unstable structure made the work too risky to continue.
Bill Neadles, a spokesman for the Toronto-based Heavy Urban Search and Rescue team, said Wednesday a second victim is being removed.
