At Least Eight Dead After a School Building Collapsed in Nigeria With Children Inside
(LAGOS, Nigeria) — Emergency crews sifted through debris as night fell on frantic efforts to rescue scores of school children and others feared trapped inside a three-story building that collapsed Wednesday in Nigeria’s densely populated commercial capital, Lagos. At least eight people were confirmed dead and 37 others were rescued alive.
Anguished families crowded around the flattened remains of the building, which housed an elementary school, holding out hope that more children would still be found alive in the wreckage.
Scenes of jubilation erupted earlier in the day when a man was brought out alive. But the mood shifted dramatically an hour later when another man was brought out dead. The rescue of a woman carried to an ambulance on a stretcher was greeted with cries of, “She’s not dead!” in the local Yoruba language.
当天早些时候，一名男子被活着带出来，人们欢呼雀跃。 但是一个小时后，当另一个人被抬出来时，情绪发生了戏剧性的变化。 当救援人员将一名妇女放在担架上抬上救护车时，救援人员喊道:"她没死!" 用当地的约鲁巴语。
