RIGA, November 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Overnight rescuers have not found new victims under the debris of a supermarket, which collapsed on November 21, Interior Minister Rihards Kozlovkis told Radio Latvia on Monday.
Rescuers have to check 20 square meters of the debris, Kozlovkis said.
“If there is no collapse, the work will be ended within the day,” he said.
Latvian law enforcement agencies instituted criminal proceedings upon the incident. Three versions are being considered. The first version is linked with design violations and the second one with the construction mistake. The third version is that construction materials can be stored on the roof.
Meanwhile, doctors consider the condition of two people injured in the collapse very grave, chief of the emergency medical care Armands Plorins told Latvian television on Monday.
Currently doctors are fighting for the life of one of the rescuers and an employee of the supermarket, Plorins said.
Another twelve people’s condition is in medium severity. “Traumas are very grave. Patients have to undergo treatment for long,” he said.
Rescue works have been continuing for 48 hours. At the moment at least 150 rescuers are involved in the works. They have to check about 80 meters of the debris.
Policemen report fifty-four people, including three rescuers, were killed. About 40 people received traumas. Among them are 13 rescuers. At least 29 people were taken to hospital. Till now nineteen people are being in hospital.
