Men Fall From Building Inferno


    A fire erupted at the LDA plaza situated on Lahore’s Edgerton road killed eight persons, injured and trapped several others inside the building, reported Express News on Thursday. The fire erupted around noon started on the 7th and 8th floor of the building and rapidly engulfed three more floors. A man reportedly fell from the seventh floor of the 13-story building while escaping the fire and died on the spot. Similarly, two others jumped out in hope of escaping but later succumbed to injuries at the hospital. The rescued persons were shifted to Ganga Ram Hospital.

    Due to wrongly parked cars outside the plaza, rescue teams faced difficulties in their operation. There was an apparent lack of required machinery for the operation according to Rescue 112 workers. Helicopters were used in the rescue operation to evacuate people from the building.
