Rescue operations are ongoing in Kangemi after a bridge under construction collapsed.
So far, four people have been rescued and several others still trapped under the soil where the bridge collapsed on James Gichuru-Rironi Road in Westlands.
“Two people have been taken to Eagle Nursing Home Medical and Health in Westlands, but the excavators are still at the scene, we do not know if there are still more people,” a witness quoted by The Standard said.
In a statement, the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) said that all of the workers on site had been accounted for.
“Amid ongoing works along the James Gichuru – Rironi road project at Kangemi, the soil around the retaining wall for Kangemi Bridge collapsed. One of the workers on site was rushed to hospital and is in stable condition. Two other workers survived the accident with minor injuries,” said KeNHA.
