Building collapse in Sri Lanka's capital kills 1, injures 22


Rescuers were digging through rubble trying to save a woman they feared was trapped inside a collapsed wedding reception hall in the Sri Lankan capital on Friday, officials said after confirming that one man had been killed and 23 injured.

Labourers were working on the roof of the grand seven-level structure in Colombo when it came crashing down, pinning tradesmen beneath falling slabs of concrete.

Police say at least 19 people have been injured in the collapse of a five-story building under construction in Sri Lanka's capital.

"I was trapped under concrete beams, but I could managed to crawl out to safety, but a colleague of mine is still missing", he told AFP while being treated for a leg injury in hospital.

Police spokesman Priyantha Jayakody said the injured in the mishap have been rushed to nearby hospitals while rescue efforts are underway at the site in Wellawatte.

Construction accidents are rare in Sri Lanka but concerns have been raised about building standards from a building boom in the aftermath of the civil war.
