    shopping complex collapse

     
    MANY PEOPLE ARE FEARED DEAD OR INJURED AS A SIX-STOREY MELCOM SHOPPING COMPLEX OPPOSITE THE NEOPLAN ASSEMBLY PLANT AT ACHIMOTA ACCRA GHANA CAVED IN AND COLLAPSED THIS WEDNESDAY MORNING. ACCORDING TO EYE WITNESSES, THERE WERE SO MANY WORKERS AND LOTS OF SHOPPERS WITHIN THE NEWLY-BUILT SHOPPING COMPLEX BEFORE IT COLLAPSED. WHAT COULD HAVE CAUSED THE COLLAPSE OF SUCH A NEW BUILDING AND HOW BEST CAN WE ENSURE THAT SUCH INCIDENTS DO NOT HAPPEN IN FUTURE? ALSO, DO YOU THINK THE NATION HAS ENOUGH EQUIPMENT TO HELP RESCUE THE TRAPPED PEOPLE UNDER THE RUBBLE WITHIN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME?
