(New York, NY) -- Investigators hope to begin pressure testing gas lines at the site of the double building collapse in New York City that killed eight people. With most of the rubble clear, crews are close to getting into the basements of both East Harlem buildings to investigate the gas meters connected to the incoming lines. Meantime the eighth person killed in last week's blast has been identified as 34-year-old Mayumi Nakamura. The Japanese native had been visiting the United States by herself. Her body will be returned to Japan for burial. Wakes and funerals are beginning for the other seven victims killed.
