International reports are surfacing that a major accident has unfolded at the stock exchange building in Indonesia.
75 people were reportedly injured Monday when a balcony in the building collapsed. Video footage was captured of the incident on a security tape.
NDTV reports the following:
“A cascade of glass, metal and other material crashed onto the ground floor when part of the mezzanine level gave way.
A Jakarta police spokesman said the collapse was an accident and not the result of an explosion.
National police spokesman Setyo Wasisto told AFP 75 people had been injured. There were no reports of deaths so far.
Television images showed chaotic scenes as victims were taken to hospital or lay on the ground outside the tower complex in the centre of the sprawling city’s business district.”
