Derelict building in Ostrava collapses

27-05-2013

Part of a derelict block of flats collapsed in Ostrava in the early hours of Monday. Six squatters escaped from the building unharmed. Firefighters with sniffer dogs sifted through the debris but found no one else. All three floors of the building collapsed and the rest of it is slated for demolition. It is not clear if persistent rain over the past few days contributed to the accident.
