The collapse led to 1 person’s death and injury of a few others, while the other families were stuck under the rubble as Civil Protection agents worked tirelessly to rescue them.

As the nearby buildings were evacuated, a 2nd and 3rd buildings who are next to the first one also collapsed at sunset, but luckily they were already evacuated.
