Footage shows terrified pedestrians running for their lives and escaping the cloud of smoke and dust as the building crumbles. CCTV footage of the building’s collapse begins with nothing apparently amiss but within seconds the building is toppling as the bottom storey gives way. The residential block on the Asian side of the city was home to 43 people living in 14 apartments, with an illegal textile workshop on the ground floor. Turkish media reported that at least one person was dead and four others were trapped under the debris. It was not immediately clear why the building, in the Kartal district on the Asian side of the city, had collapsed.
