Nine Dead in Mumbai Building Collapses Incident


Bombay (August 31, 2017): Rescue workers in Mumbai searched for up to 20 people feared trapped in a six-storey building that collapsed early on Thursday, following two days of torrential rain in India’s commercial hub.

Nine people had been confirmed dead, a municipal authority official said, while rescuers estimated more than 16 had been injured and taken to hospital.The collapse is the second in Mumbai in a little over a month. In July, 17 people were killed when a four-storey building crumbled after undergoing suspected unauthorised renovations.

Police had yet to determine what caused the collapse on Thursday, which was again testing the city’s rescue operations after 14 people were killed by floods from heavy monsoon rains earlier in the week.
