17 alleged Brotherhood members arrested for ‘drowning Alexandria’ - Daily News Egypt
Fifteen people were killed, including one child, from electrocution due to the floods, and 27 other were injured in Beheira, while two were killed and one was injured in Gharbeya due to the flooding.
One child died, and his sibling was injured in a building collapse in Alexandria due to floods on Friday. The building collapsed when the ceiling of the top floor cracked and fell on its residents, killing three-year-old Mohamed A. and severely injuring his older brother in the head, according to the initial police investigations reported by state-run news agency MENA.
Residents were evacuated until the building is reviewed by the committee for brittle buildings.
Deaths from flooding are a yearly phenomenon, with many coastal and Delta cities flooding during the winter season. It is widely believed that the poor infrastructure is the cause for the repeated yearly deaths.
