A three-story building collapsed on Wednesday in Nigeria’s most populous city of Lagos with scores of children inside.

The school building collapsed while classes were in session with scores of children believed to be inside in Victoria Island area of Lagos.

Casualty was unknown but one report said onlookers cheered when a child covered in dust was pulled out alive.

Those in Nigeria said it was not just a school but a 3-story building with a school on the last floor.

Rescuers rushed to the scene to pull out children.

Building collapses are all too common in Nigeria where regulations are often not followed.
