A backhoe works at the scene of the collapsed Jabal Nur mosque in North Lombok, Indonesia on Aug. 7, 2018, after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesia resort islands of Lombok and Bali on Sunday. 

A man who narrowly escaped the collapse Sunday evening says there were about 100 people praying inside when the earthquake struck and though many got out, dozens were buried in the rubble.
