With the recovery of two more bodies, the death toll in the well collapse incident in the wilayat of Al Khaboura has gone up to four.


According to the Civil Defence and Ambulance Authority, "Referring to the previous communication, and after search efforts in the Falaj stream in Sana'a Bani Ghafir area in the Wilayat of Al Khaboura, the rescue teams of the Civil Defence and Ambulance Department in North Al Batinah Governorate were able to retrieve two more bodies, bringing the number of killed people to four."


To avoid such incidents, the CDAA has called on institutions, companies, and individuals to follow safety procedures during the maintenance of wells and Falaj systems.
