The man stated that he barely escaped the Gerrard Terraces building as it collapsed.

He says he then noticed a "cracking sound" while standing close to a pillar and he quickly ran away as the 21-storey building came down in a heap, burying scores.
Another mam named Dougha Jude also took to Twitter to reveal that he was working in the building and left moments before it collapsed.
