Search and rescue systems in  Nigeria have to be looked into urgently, a very sad event occured a few days ago when a truck carrying a 40 foot contained slipped and collapsed on a car which had three occupants. This happened on Friday August 3rd on the Anthony Bridge, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway.
The driver of the Toyota and another man in the car died instantly, but not the one in the photo. He called for help for over hours but the people around had no means to lift the container off the car. Even LASEMA couldn’t help because the container was too heavy. The man eventually died.

Finally, four hours after the accident, a crane was brought to lift the container off the mangled car. The bodies of the three men were taken to Gbagada General Hospital.

  • Sick sick country! No value for life at all! We need to do something about this country ooo, even if na to divide am! How can a country this rich and after about 50years of independence be this backward and problem filled witout any value for human life?? I HATE NAIJA! If boko is not killing thousands including women and children, it will be plane crashing on people in their homes or flood killing hundreds or container falling on innocent people driving home to their families or fuel tank exploding on hundreds tryin to scoop fuel,or accidents or churches being bombed now see olympics we cannot even win anything but shame even athletes are complaining of non payment of allowances yet our leaders are enjoying millions from our oil!
