At least four people have been killed and more than 30 are feared trapped in the rubble of a four-storey residential building which has collapsed in Mumbai. At least seven people are believed to have been rescued. This year it seems that this is happening everywhere around us. The reasons leading to this might be different, yet always a tragedy!
The incident which happened in the crowded Dongri neighbourhood. The rescue operation involving sniffer dogs is difficult. The 100-year-old building is in an area south of the city with narrow streets.
Ten ambulances and fire engines were deployed but had to park some distance away as the streets were too narrow for them to enter, according to reports. Machines that can move earth were also too large to get through the alleyways.
