Building collapses leave 5 dead, 9 injured in Rio

At least five people were killed, nine injured and 13 others missing, after the collapse of two residential buildings in the Muzema slum community. The residents of the two collapsed buildings, having four and six floors respectively, moved in just six months ago. Civil defense personnel evacuated residents of the nearby buildings for fear that more buildings are facing the risk of falling. It was not raining when the collapse occurred, but the Muzema area was deeply affected by the recent storms which hit Rio earlier this week, killing 10 people and causing severe damages. The neighborhood’s main streets were still flooded and residents were isolated by Friday morning, though the storm occurred on Monday. According to the city government, the buildings were irregular constructions without the permission of the mayor’s office and the city authorities had tried to demolish them, but a court order prevented the demolition.
