Rescue workers in Mumbai searched for more than a dozen people feared trapped in a 117-year-old, six-storey building that collapsed early on Thursday (August 31), following two days of torrential rain in India's commercial and financial hub.
Eleven people had been confirmed dead, and 14 had been injured and taken to hospital, with four firemen also injured, the chief fire official said.
Disaster struck early in the morning as Mumbai was emerging from two days of heavy rain that flooded the city and killed 14 people.
The building that collapsed on Thursday, in one of the most densely populated areas of the city, had been declared dilapidated by the city's municipal housing authority in 2011. But it was still inhabited by an unknown number of residents.
