A woman that was trapped in a building collapse in Sioux Falls and her parent’s have filed a lawsuit against project developers.

The Fodness family has filed against several developers involved in the Copper Lounge building collapse in December of 2016.

According to the lawsuit, Emily Fodness was sleeping in her family’s apartment while crews worked on a load-bearing wall.

She woke up to her bedroom floor collapsing and was buried by debris a half-story down.

The family is seeking unspecified damages and wants a trial by jury on all the issues.
