Builders Thought to Be Trapped Under Rubble

July 21, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Rescue workers seeking five men believed trapped in a collapsed London apartment building brought in hydraulic lifting gear and listening equipment after picking through the ruins for a day.

At least four other people were injured in the collapse of the three-story building at 8 a.m. in the north London district of Tottenham.

All the residents had been traced, rescue workers said, but five builders were missing. They had been knocking down a wall in a ground-floor shop.
