JAKARTA - A number of people is trapped after a building belonging to Metro department store partially collapsed in Tanah Abang in Jakarta. The new building was built only three months ago. Hundreds of people are currently looking for people trapped under the rubble of the building. The place was crowded with people looking for last-minute Christmas sales when it collapsed.
Fire crews and other rescue teams are on the scene looking for people. The building did not catch fire when it collapsed however. In the area of the collapsed building traffic has come to a complete stop which causes difficulties in bringing people to hospitals. Four people have been brought to the local hospital of Tarakan in central Jakarta. Most people have injuries to their head.
