One person was killed after a factory collapsed in Karachi's Landhi Export Processing Zone late Friday.

Three people have been rescued, while search is underway for another person. The police, Rangers and rescue workers of Chipa are carrying out the search.

The police said that the collapse occurred after a speeding container rammed into the factory. The driver could not control the vehicle as its brakes had failed.

Landhi Export Processing Zone Secretary Nasir Hidayat Khan told SAMAA Digital that first and second floors of Bushra Industries collapsed late Friday.

The company’s security guard informed him that three workers were inside the building when it collapsed, he said. They were reportedly offloading a shipment.

The factory owners had, on the other hand, said that no workers are present at the factory in the evening.
