Floor collapses inside Indonesia stock exchange tower, more than 80 injured

More than 80 people were injured after a floor at Indonesia’s stock exchange collapsed into the building’s lobby on Monday, police said.

“We are still investigating the cause, but for now our priorities are the casualties,” Jakarta police spokesman Argo Yuwono told Metro TV.

The police spokesman did not say how many were injured but added that there were no reports of deaths so far.A witness at the scene told Reuters that around a dozen people were injured.Footage aired by TV stations showed several people lying on the ground and being carrying out of the building in stretchers as people panicked and screamed while officials tried to evacuate the area.

Images circulating on social media showed a mangled metal structure collapsed in front of a Starbucks coffee shop.

The Indonesia Stock Exchange is located in the center of Jakarta, and the local office of the World Bank is also housed on the 12th floor of the complex, according to its website.
