Video: Retaining Wall Collapse in Istanbul

Retaining wall collapse in Istanbul

Back in July of 2018 bystanders recorded video of the failure of a combination retaining wall and braced excavation that undermined an apartment building, eventually causing its collapse as well.  The incident was in the Beyoglu district, and the police and firefighters were able to cordon off the surrounding area as the failure took several hours to occur.
