Engineer Abdullah told Saudi media that he left his office in the building that witnessed the landslide, heading to his car located at the bottom of the car park, and in the middle of the stairs he felt intense air pressure coming from the bottom of the basement, which prompted him to stop continuing to descend and climb again.

He added that when he reached the top of the stairs, he discovered that the ceiling of the entire basement collapsed in several moments in succession, noting that he noticed the presence of another person behind him on the stairs, who was injured.
He added, explaining that some people who were present in their cars in the basement at the moment of the collapse were rescued by the Civil Defense, but the cars that were below were often completely destroyed because the roof collapsed on them completely.
He explained that there might have been 40 or 50 cars on the roof, some of them completely damaged and some still intact.

And he added that he has had an engineering office in this building for 12 years, during which he has not witnessed any similar accidents, and that during the recent period there have been no cracks or damage in the building that warns of any collapse.
When the clip spread with the intensity, many tweeters interacted with him, and demanded that the contractor responsible for building this place be held accountable, and one commentator said, “When there is corruption and dependence on false contractors, this result is a great financial loss and loss of lives.”
When there is corruption and the dependence of lying contractors, this result is … a great financial loss and loss of life …https://t.co/zKsC9mKhwf

You would catch the contractor and imprison him for 30 years, less https://t.co/37fF3zkTXF

The worst thing that can be imagined is the failure to distribute the load correctly. The right load first collapsed and then the rest followed due to poor distribution of the parking load. What is required is an investigation of the entire person who worked on this project. https://t.co/Y4PHkfa6fs

They are supposed to be held accountable for the asphalt structure that they have leveled, may God reward them for them تر Everything is patched up so that they care about the streets and buildings, such as caring for entertainment
