Four persons were on Monday rescued after they got injured in another building collapse in Egerton square, Oke Arin, Lagos Island.

The collapse occurred during the demolition of another building nearby.

Director of the Lagos State Fire Service, Rasaki Musbau, said the building had a partial collapse.

“Information from our men on the ground at the scene showed that it was a partial collapse. They have removed four persons trapped in the building. They were all rescued alive. They have been taken to the hospital for treatment as I speak,” he said.

Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) confirmed that “officials were on top of the building when some scavengers tried to remove the doors on the ground floor and the remaining parts of the building collapsed on them.”
