A number of people were trapped when part of a building collapsed in central Prague on Tuesday morning. Three people were freed from the building on Mikulandská St., which is just off Národní, and were given medical care. One was placed in an artificial coma. Two workers were said to have medium severity injuries.

It was reported on Tuesday afternoon that more people may still be under the rubble in the building, which has been undergoing renovation work.
