Firefighters rushed to the scene and rescued the three-member Asian family from the collapsed building. The firefighters rescued the family and transferred them to hospital, while the investigation teams were examining the scene.

The interior ministry said in a statement to the press that a video clip on social media showing a person in an abnormal condition causing a traffic accident and the death of an Asian led to the arrest of the suspect.

The interior ministry also commented on social media claims accusing a senior interior ministry official of covering up a complaint against a Kuwaiti woman. It said the complaint against the woman is related to a different case against another suspect, so the complaint was referred to the technical office to take the necessary action in case it is proven there is a link between the two cases. The department said this referral was done according to legal procedures in this regard without interference from any party. It added legal action will be taken as soon as investigations are complete.
