PHILADELPHIA (Metro)-Rescue teams have found another survivor in the rubble of a Philadelphia building that collapsed.  More than 12 hours after the collapse and shortly after Mayor Michael Nutter told reporters the death toll had risen to at least six, came word of a woman being rescued.  One man and five women died when the downtown building collapsed yesterday.  A four-story building came down on top of a two-story building which housed a Salvation Army Thrift Store.  Throughout the day, 13 people were rescued from the ruins as crews dug with the assistance of search dogs.  The discovery of the woman late Wednesday night increased the survivor total to 14.
