Fire tragedy in Dubai skyscraper

At least one person is feared dead after being seen falling off a burning skyscraper, under construction at Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers, according to Gulf News.

The fire has made international headlines and there are fears of more fatalities:

Several dozen workers could be seen on the upper, unfinished floors of the building, trapped by the flames, some waving what appeared to be towels and holding onto the scaffolding. A helicopter has been unable to land on the roof to rescue the men.
