Half of flat of residential building collapsed in Zhanaozen
Aktau. January 9. KazTAG - A concrete slab has collapsed in an apartments block in Zhanaozen.
“My mother, an elderly woman, almost fell into the hole. I barely managed to grab her. We all experienced shock. Our house is about 50 years old. All the bricks are crumbling. Several times we appealed to the city administration to recognize our house as an emergency. What are we waiting for? When a brick falls on someone's head or a person dies under the collapse? Only in this case our officials will start acting? ” said Amangeldy Bokelov, flat's owner.
The inhabitants of nearby flats have already moved to their relatives. People fear the building will collapse. They said some slabs in the basement are below the duly level.
The administration of Zhanaozen promised to create a commission.
