Emilio area - Building Collapse

Post by HEPZIBAH »

I've just read a post on Facebook that said a building near to the Emilio Hotel has collapsed this evening. It stated that a Caleche Driver had been killed. Trying to understand translations on some of the Luxor Portal Facebook page (where there are videos) it looks as though at least two people have died and an ongoing search is taking place for others.

I hope any of our Luxor based members, ex-pat or visitor, if you see this will just make a post so we know you are OK. The 'Emilio Street' is a popular route for many especially in the area of the souks crossing area.

From the latest information I can gather - this happened near the Coptic School. I understand that at least 3 people have died and 13 injured. I believe a search is on going.

The Emilo ! a great favorite over the years, we always stayed there bar top roof, swimming pool amazing views.
So has the swimming pool leaked through the floors ?

A list of the known dead and injured as a result of the building collapse. I'm taking 'bruises' as a very widely non-descriptive word based on the appeal from the hospital for blood doners.

Terrible news, walked past the Coptic School only the other day. The road is very narrow in that area and always full of traffic.

I do agree wholeheartedly, it's the 5 years as a paramedic, grief, mourning ect, tends to fly over one's head.
