By Mike Hayes05 September 2016

An under-construction car park building in northern Tel Aviv collapsed on Monday morning, killing three people, and injuring 23.

Unconfirmed reports say a crane fell onto the four-storey building, causing it to collapse.

Paramedics were called to the scene on Monday morning.

Yoram Levy, a spokesman for the firefighting team at the scene said, “There are people buried beneath the sand,” and that help with the rescue effort was being sought from the Israeli military’s Homefront Command.
