WASHINGTON, July 2 ― Search and rescue crews yesterday freed a construction worker who had been trapped for more than 90 minutes inside a partially-built five-story building that collapsed during a rain storm in Washington.

The man, who was not identified by authorities, was taken to a local hospital with “serious but not life-threatening” injuries, said John Donnelly, assistant chief of DC Fire and EMS.

Four other construction workers were rescued from the debris shortly after the building about 5 miles (8km) north of the Capitol came down at around 3.30pm (1930 GMT), Donnelly said.

They were also taken to a local hospital. They had non-life-threatening injuries, Donnelly said.

Images showed dozens of firefighters swarming over piles of wood left behind by the collapse, using saws and heavy equipment to move large pieces.

Last week, a condominium tower collapsed in Surfside, Florida as most residents slept. Searchers there have recovered 18 bodies and say another 145 people remain missing.
