Rescue efforts at the site of a collapsed building in Amman, Jordan’s Al-Weibdeh neighbourhood continued on Wednesday after at least five people were confirmed dead. At least 25 people were in a dilapidated residential building in Amman when it crumbled on Sept. 13. "I saw my children fall in front of me," said Nisreen Barakat al-Hmoud, who survived the collapse. Admitted to a local hospital, Hmoud said the urgency to find her children after walls had crumbled around them helped her to comprehend the situation. “All of a sudden, we were buried,” she said. About a dozen people had been evacuated so far, several with serious injuries, hospital sources said. Prime Minister Bisher al Khasawneh ordered an investigation as officials blamed the building's state of disrepair.
