SAD NEWS: 4 Killed In Building Collapse, Rescuers Still On Site To Rescue Trapped Victims
At least four people have died and 30 injured when a four-storey building collapsed in the district of Cocody in Abidjan, Ivory Coast‘s biggest city.
The incident took place around half-past midnight on Monday, the fire department said.
A search operation is ongoing within the security perimeter established at the site.
Despite rescuers’ efforts, witnesses say some people are still trapped in the rubble.
The 28-apartment building was inaugurated only two years ago but some of its tenants say big cracks were visible in the construction.
