A building under repair has collapsed in central Moscow, killing 2 construction workers and seriously injuring another. According to initial reports, 5 people were trapped when the 3-storey structure caved in.

Rescuers arrived at the scene and discovered two dead bodies while clearing through the rubble. Another worker who was stuck under a massive concrete plate was found in the basement. Rescuers are still searching for the remaining two workers.
