A three-storey building under construction inside Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, collapsed on Tuesday evening, June 18, leaving people trapped. Two persons who were working inside the building when it collapsed, reportedly got trapped.

One of the workers was first rescued and taken to the hospital where he is currently receiving medical attention. A rescue team involving engineers and officials of the State Ministry of Works, Capital Territory Development Authority and security agencies battled to rescue the second victim.
