The basement collapsed on three men doing renovation work in Miskolc, police reported. The victims were working in the basement on Wednesday morning when the basement ceiling collapsed, burying the three young men beneath it.
Disaster management closed off the area while they began rescuing the workers, which requires special measures. They say that there are no signs of life from the men trapped under the ruins. The Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County Police Headquarters initiated criminal proceedings due to suspicion of occupational endangerment.
According to information from Minap.hu, the accident happened on the Szent Benedek-hegyi cellar line, and the National Ambulance Service confirmed to them that two people definitely lost their lives. The two bodies could not be moved due to the debris, and the rescue is also made difficult by the fact that the site is difficult to access and is not safe, and the rescuers are currently waiting for mining engineers to remove the debris first.
