« The sudden collapse of a building in the city of Cairo, in the Hadayek al-Qubba area, killed at least four people and injured six on Wednesday.
Footage recorded in the site of the accient show the remains of the four-storey building, as well as damaged cars and streets flooded with rubble.
« I live next to the house. At around 5:30 a.m., we heard a loud sound with a lot of dust, drowning the entire world. We ran and found the house collapsing », said Ahmed Ramadan, a neighbour who witnessed the disaster.
Preliminary information from Cairo’s Civil Protection authority indicates that the building should have been vacated. The Public Prosecutor’s Office has launched an investigation into why the decision was not implemented.
The Hadaeq El-Qubbah neighbourhood had already suffered another similar collapse in July, when a four-storey building was destroyed, killing 13 people. Three other buildings collapsed in Alexandria and Beheira in the same month. »
