Residential apartment building collapsed in Spain

A three-story residential building collapsed in the Spanish municipality of Peñiscola. Reported by El Pais. According to the local police, at least three people were missing under the rubble. One of them could have survived. He answered the calls of the rescue service. Now all forces are focused on finding and rescuing him. It is noted that in addition to the man, ambulance teams are trying to find a woman and her son.

Now, six fire brigades and personnel of emergency rescue units, a dog team have been deployed to the scene. The cause of the incident is currently unknown. It is noted that this is not an explosion and that the building could not collapse due to its service life – it was built not so long ago.

At the same time, nine families, including 30 people, will be resettled from this and the neighboring house. Civil engineers from the city council of Peñiscola were dispatched to the scene to analyze the situation and determine if there was a risk of collapse of the rest of the building.

Earlier, the canopy and part of the facade of the La Bonita supermarket in Nevada collapsed, as a result of which at least four people were injured.
