“We were hoping to find them alive, but all five had already died by the time we found them,” he said.

Another construction worker, Yun Noojaiy, 50, said that while they were waiting for cement truck to pour more concrete to make the slab, the whole level collapsed from underneath.

“The debris buried my wife and four other women who were working on the lower floor,” he said.
