In Bengaluru’s Wilson Garden area, a three-storey building that housed metro construction workers came crashing down. No casualties or injuries are being reported thus far. According to several reports, the building was tilting for nearly three years. According to an Indian Express report, the fire department rushed in immediately to the spot after the residents called them and evacuated the building moments before the collapse. The building collapse was caught on camera. Hours after the incident, Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) issued a statement saying that metro construction workers who were staying at the building are safe.

BMRCL’s statement read, “BMRCL wishes to clarify that this building was being occupied by about 22 Labourers working for the Underground stretch. Cracks were observed in the basement and the labourers were shifted immediately from the building. No labourer belonging to the Metro works contractor were injured”. Police mentioned that the building had started developing cracks several days ago and have registered an FIR against the building owner Suresh. The building was reportedly 70 years old and came crashing down at around 11:40 AM on September 27. 

Take a look at the video:

A video of the incident was widely circulated on social media and also shared by news agency ANI.
