The survivor claimed that he tried waking his friends before leaving but they didn’t wake up. With his attempts failing, he left the room and the room collapsed minutes later.
The Reaction Officers have tried retrieving the bodies that were trapped under several tons of debris, but because of the heavy rain, the recovery had to be abandoned.
The recovery is expected to continue today, Tuesday.
