Javier, a resident of Playa de Palma, witnessed the tragedy unfold. “It was like a bomb. The terrace of a restaurant collapsed on the ground floor of the building when it was full of people,” he recounted.

The building, consisting of two floors and a basement, posed a challenging search area, with concerns that workers could still be buried beneath the debris. Silence was maintained to aid the rescue efforts, and the area was cordoned off to keep order and facilitate efficient work.
