A three-story building under construction in Madina, Greater Accra Region, collapsed on Monday, leaving one person feared dead and three others injured.
Rescuers from NADMO, Ghana National Fire Service, and the Ghana Police Service struggled to retrieve the trapped person due to a lack of equipment.
The Member of Parliament for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, confirmed the incident and is appealing for help from individuals with excavators to assist with rescue operations.
The collapsed building is located near Kpogas Furniture, Adentan footbridge, SDA church junction, and West African Hardware Company.
“According to the NADMO officer, the only excavator available to them at 37 had broken down. Currently, it is a desperate call we are making for help to rescue one person under this rubble, and so we are currently waiting anxiously for support. What is happening doesn’t look like an emergency because it is really disappointing,“ he pleaded.
