MAKASSAR, SOUTH SULAWESI - Three people have been found dead while 40 others were believed to have been buried after a warehouse collapsed at Warehousing 88 Complex on Jalan Ir Sutami here on Saturday.
"Three people have been found dead and three others seriously injured," chief of Biringkanaya Police Sector Commissioner Akbar Setiawan said here on Saturday.
The incident occurred at around 2pm on Saturday during a heavy rain that had presumably caused the land where the building stood to slide.
Efforts were still being made by the police assisted by military and Search and Rescue Team personnel to find other victims. "The number of the dead victims is believed to rise as many are still buried and have not yet been found so far," he said. The Warehousing 88 on the Manis Industrial zone was set up in 2007 and has been fully used due to its location which is close to the Bitung Toll road.
