Report: 1 injured in building collapse in Istanbul

The first floor ceiling of a four-story building in Istanbul caved in Tuesday, trapping one man beneath the wreckage, CNN-Turk television reported. The man was rescued with injuries but no one else was hurt.
The incident occurred in Istanbul's low-income Sancaktepe neighborhood, on the Asian side of the city, part of which lies in Europe.
It was not immediately known what caused the collapse. Police officials could not be reached for comment.
Television footage showed police and paramedics trying to pull out the trapped man.
CNN-Turk and the private Dogan news agency had reported earlier that a six-story building collapsed and that several people had been injured.
