8. From what I understand it was in the night, so people
had to scramble from their beds but many couldn't get outside in time. I know that in our high rise society, the middle of the night is actually better, but in Iran the places they lived in tumbled down on top of them. This is very sad really. If they had access to our building materials and money, these tragedies could be averted. I think also there is so much graft that even if they had building codes most likely they have been circumvented with bribery.
