Tel Aviv Building Collapse Kills Four, Injures Dozens More

Early this morning in Tel Aviv, a building collapsed on a construction site, killing several people and injuring dozens more.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

“I don’t remember well what happened,” says Hassan Kabah apologetically, his body still covered in rubble and bloodstains as he lays in his hospital bed at Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center.

Kabah, 22, from the Arab village Barta’a, had been doing construction work on the bottom floor of the parking structure in Tel Aviv’s Ramat Hachayal neighborhood when it collapsed on Monday morning.

“I thought I was going to die,” he tells The Jerusalem Post in between answering questions from doctors at the emergency ward. Kabah was one of three still left in the ward, after seven others had been released. “I think I was stuck underground for about an hour,” he recalls. “How did I get out of there alive? That is from God,” he says, adding that he won’t return to construction work after such a harrowing experience.

One of the Fellowship-adopted Israel Defense Forces battalions has joined the search and rescue efforts for individuals who remain trapped in the rubble.

Please join us in prayer as these efforts continue!
