FOUR people have been killed when the floor of a public toilet in southern Kyrgyzstan caved in.
The ministry for emergency situations had earlier reported that 15 people were injured in the accident on Saturday at a public toilet located in a market.
But four bodies were found in the rubble early on Sunday.
The ministry said Deputy Prime Minister Taiyrbek Sarpashev and the Minister for Emergency Situations Kubatbek Boronov have “ordered checks to be carried out on all public toilets” after visiting the accident site.
Kyrgyz rescuers found four bodies in the rubble of a collapsed public toilet at one of the country’s biggest markets, a spokesman for the republic’s emergencies service said on Sunday.
“Four bodies were found – three women and a man,” emergencies ministry spokesman Abdysharip Bekelov said.
The incident took place on Saturday afternoon at a crowded market in southern Kyrgyzstan.
The reason for the collapse of the concrete toilet floor and the exact causes of death remain unclear.
