Another Haitian school caves in; nine people injured

by

A few days after the Promessa School spontaneously collapsed in Port au Prince, Haiti killing more than 80 people (see photo,) another school, the two-storey Divine Grace School caved in partially, injuring 9 people in Canape Vert part of the capital.

Two of the 9 victims were hospitalized suffering serious body injuries prompting mothers to rush for their children. The spontaneous collapse is blamed for shoddy construction. The building is reported to have practically no cement and metal support in violation of government regulation. (Photo Credits: BBCNews.com; Ramon Espinos/AP/ABCNews) =0=
