MÉRIDA — The construction site on Calle 60 where a deadly collapse occurred Monday Dec. 4 was eerily silent and deserted Tuesday morning.
Minutes before 11 pm Monday and after more than three hours of work, the emergency and security rescue actions were completed in the area where a building of the Paseo 60 complex, which rises behind the hotel zone of this capital,
collapsed with a balance of four workers dead.
The head of the State Coordination of Civil Protection (Procivy), Aarón Palomo Euán, confirmed the death of
four workers. Reports varied on the number of injured, with some local press accounts saying as many as 10 injured workers were transported to local hospitals.
Authorities said the incident was due to a crane hitting the structure, information that will be known with certainty after the expert investigation of the incident.
A half-dozen state and local security and rescue agencies responded to the collapse, including three canine binomials, which responded immediately to the call for help and coordinated their tasks at all times.
The damaged complex is called Paseo 60 and it includes two hotels and a commercial plaza. According to the information at the scene, the damaged building will be 12 stories, but construction of only seven stories has been completed.
The construction site is located between Calle 60 and Paseo de
Montejo, near the corner of Colon Avenue.
According to Milenio newspaper (sipse.com), the balance was four dead and at least 10 injured, all of them construction workers who worked on the construction of the two hotels and a shopping center in the complex called Paseo 60.
More than fifty workers who work in the complex and were not injured were evicted from the site, which was filled with elements of emergency and security agencies.
According to the data collected at the scene, the operator of a crane that was raising a concrete block to the ninth of the 12 planned floors of the building made a bad maneuver and prompted the collapse.
In the area of the collapse a noise like an explosion was heard, and immediately a large column of dust was raised that covered the entire building under construction.
State police inspected properties adjacent to the collapsed building, as part of the debris was projected towards them.
