At 6:49 pm yesterday, three days after the collapse, one missing person was rescued from the wreckage of the building.

But in the end he was declared dead.

The worker who died is a man in his 60s, one of six missing workers.

The next day, rescuers discovered it with the naked eye, but it was in the ruins of a tangled pile of rebar and concrete, and they continued to remove the debris with heavy equipment.

The search for the five remaining missing persons is scheduled to resume at 7:30 am today.

Police and fire departments plan to continue the intensive search centered on the upper floors of the building where the rescue dogs responded.

The families of the missing are staying in tents right next to the scene of the accident, eagerly waiting for news of the rescue.

The family criticized Hyundai Industrial Development for not receiving an apology properly.

[Family of the Missing Person: Doing our best to us, some equipment, a rescue plan, etc., a little more, I wonder if this rescue could have been done sooner.] At

the site of the accident, there is a risk of collapse due to damage to the fixture .

Work is also underway to dismantle it.

After the crane is dismantled, a full-scale search and rescue operation is expected to go smoothly.

Investigations to determine the cause of the accident are also accelerating.

Following the previous three subcontractors, the police also conducted a search and seizure on the Hyundai Industrial Development Corporation field office and supervisory office yesterday.
