Worker Trapped in Collapsed Building

Sniffer dogs and heavy equipment used in search and rescue

Police have found the body of a worker who was trapped in the rubble of a building under construction that collapsed in Al Muhaisnah 1 area early Tuesday morning.

Dubai Police told Gulf News that the incident happened shortly before the command room received a call around 8am on Tuesday requesting assistance.

Police said the third floor and scaffolding collapsed in a building near the Arabian Centre on Al Khawaneej Road and a worker was injured and another trapped.

“After 26 hours of search for the trapped man, we managed to identify the location under the concrete and pulled his body out at 11am on Wednesday,” Lieutenant-Colonel Ahmad Atiq Burqibah, deputy director of the Search and Rescue Department at Dubai Police, told Gulf News.

Police received a call at 7.57am reporting that a building had collapsed and some workers were trapped inside. Photos of the carnage appeared to show an entire floor had pancaked on the floor below it.
