MADRID – Spanish officials say another body has been found in the rubble of a four-story apartment building that collapsed in a popular Canary Island tourist destination, raising the death toll from the incident to six.
The local government of Arona said police sniffer dogs were looking Saturday for a seventh resident who was still missing following the collapse of the building in Los Cristianos.
The statement said rescue teams have recovered the bodies of four women and two men so far.
The building collapsed Thursday in a built-up location near the beach in the southern coastal town on the island of Tenerife.
Three people suffered injuries. It was unclear how many people were in the building when it collapsed.
Witnesses told Spanish media the building had been undergoing renovations.
