Ten dead, 8 injured in Mumbai building collapse

MUMBAI: The death toll from the collapse of a decades-old four-storey building in India’s financial capital Mumbai rose to 10 late on Tuesday, with at least eight injured, officials said, as rescue operations continued to remove those trapped in the rubble. It was the second building collapse in Mumbai in 10 days, as monsoon rains lash the city. Several older and badly-constructed structures have crumbled in Mumbai in recent years due to heavy monsoons.
Around 15 families were believed to be living in the building that collapsed on Tuesday morning, said Mumbai’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Singe. (REUTERS)
