Buildings went down in a similar way in 1999 when western Turkey was hit by a
7.6 magnitude earthquake (which left some 17,000 dead).

It was due to the construction of an underground carpark that caused the nearby riverbank to collapse ---> the soil loosens ---> the apartment tipped over

Nah, the head contractor will shift the blame to the piling contractor. Might be more of a design issue though.
