A crane collapsed on a building in an industrial area in Rishon Lezion on Wednesday morning, reportedly trapping people under the wreckage.
A Magen David Adom (MDA) spokesperson reported that there did not seem to be any injured people outside the wreckage as the teams advanced to scan the area for people trapped underneath.
The construction workers that were at the scene remained unharmed as no injuries were initially reported. MDA teams and firefighters continue to search for people trapped.
According to the Fire and Rescue services, primary reports indicate that there are many people currently trapped.
“As soon as we received the report of the incident, we sent a large force to the area because there was fear of many casualties. We arrived there quickly and after preliminary scans of the area, no injuries were observed. Our paramedics and medics are there and prepared to provide medical care if need be,” MDA Ayalon Region manager Efi Bar said.
