A man spent 10 hours inside a building that partially collapsed during renovations in central London and was freed by rescue workers on Wednesday.
Emergency services removed the construction worker from the building at around 2:30 a.m. (0130 GMT) after using a crane, fiber-optic cameras and listening devices to gain access to him, London Fire Brigade Station Manager Mark Blomfield said at the scene. He described the rescue as "difficult and dangerous."
The man, who was not identified, was taken to the Royal London Hospital and was in stable condition, fire officials said.
Westminster Police Commander Steve Allen said the collapse appeared to have been caused by structural failings. One other injured person was taken to a hospital on Tuesday.
Allen expressed relief that more people hadn't been hurt.
"The potential for loss of life and serious injury was immense here," Allen said.
