Building collapse leaves 2 dead, 4 trapped in Istanbul

An eight-storey apartment building collapsed in Turkey’s Istanbul on Wednesday, leaving two dead and four others trapped under the rubble. Six were rescued with injuries, the Istanbul governor’s office said in a brief statement. Binali Yildirim, speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, went to the scene in the Kartal District on the Asian side of the city. Rescue teams have contacted the four people beneath the rubble, the Hurriyet Daily quoted the speaker as saying. The teams are working very hard to save these people, Yildirim said. The authorities have reportedly imposed a ban on live broadcast from the scene, while an investigation was launched into the incident. A total of 43 people lived in the fallen building, according to the Hurriyet. Some residents reportedly said they heard an explosion before the collapse.
