Ajman hotel collapse kills six

Six people died when the ground floor of a hotel under construction collapsed in Ajman on Monday, according to local reports. One worker has been injured and another six are believed to be trapped in the rubble.

The Laguna Beach Hotel’s ground floor allegedly collapsed at around 3am on Monday onto the basement, trapping construction workers on duty, an Ajman Police official was quoted by a local newspaper. The official added that excess concrete spill caused the ground floor to collapse.

Rescue efforts have been undertaken by the Dubai Civil Defence and other authorities.
