Searchers have completed their work through the rubble of a collapsed roof at a shopping mall under construction in Tongaat, South Africa and reported no workers remain trapped. One person died and 29 workers were injured in the Nov. 19 collapse, according to South African media reports.

The site is located north of Durban. The online newspaper Mail & Guardian reported that one source said the collapse occurred when the back wall of the mall collapsed.
