Tunnel collapsed in Japan

leave a comment »

A tunnel in central Japan collapsed earlier today, killing at least three people and starting a major blaze.  Rescue crews had to postpone rescue efforts in fear that another collapse may occur.

Seven people were unaccounted for in the tunnel but only 3 bodies have yet to be found.

One witness described the scene as filled with dense smoke coming out as if it covers the entire mountain.

“When I was driving in the tunnel, concrete pieces fell down suddenly from the ceiling,” a man in his 30s told public broadcaster NHK.  “I saw a crushed car catching fire.  I was frightened, left my car and walked for about an hour to get out of the tunnel.” (Hideyuki Sano)

Recovery efforts are still being put into place.
