According to the BBC, at least 7 school children have died after the collapse of a classroom in a primary school in Nairobi, Kenya.
The structure at Precious Talent Top School which was wooden, gave way just minutes after the start of school on Monday September 23rd,2019.
Dozens of people were also injured and emergency services had arrived on the scene as at press time, although they complained of inability to arrive at the scene in time as a result of large crowd gatherings.
“So far we can confirm that we have seven fatalities and 57 others are in hospital,” a government spokesman told reporters outside the school in Dagoretti.
The school director Moses Ndirangu, has blamed the unfortunate incident on the collapse of a sewer pipeline near by.
