The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) on Thursday said it recovered one dead body from a building that collapsed in Lagos Island.

The LASEMA Director-General, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirming the incident, said the five-year-old casualty died as a result of a beam that collapsed on him.

He said that the agency received a distress call at about 10:55 a.m. of a collapsed building at No. 19, Church Str. in Lagos Island.

Oke-Osanyintolu noted that LASEMA's swift response to the distress call helped in saving the lives of the occupants of the building except one.

"The single, yet-to-be identified fatality was due to a room beam that partially collapsed on him when the incident occurred.

"Further investigation revealed that the building had been slated for a non integrity test because of visible cracks on the beam and columns of the building.
