Mumbai building collapse
At least 15 people were killed and over 30 feared trapped after a 117-year-old five-storey residential building collapsed in the congested Bhendi Bazaar area of south Mumbai on Thursday, days after torrential rain pounded India’s financial capital, officials said.

Thirteen tenants, including 12 families, were living in the building at Pakmodia Street, where underworld don Dawood Ibrahim once lived. Some reports said it also housed a play school but the children had not arrived when the building collapsed.

“Five patients are in critical condition and have been kept under observation in the Intensive Care Unit. They have suffered multiple injuries and fractures. Rest are currently stable,” JJ Hospital’s Dr TP Lahane said.
