100 year old building collapsed in Dongri, 40 buried to death

On Tuesday in south Mumbai’s Dongri, a 100-year-old building collapsed, people made a human chain and removed the wreckage to rescue those caught underneath.

Less than 2 weeks, Mumbai rains caused Malad Wall collapse and killed 12 adults and this is one such incident after that.

Two died and around 40 are expected burried in the incident.

The small lanes made it hard for the rescue team and the ambulances to arrive at the accident spot.

The ambulances were unable to arrive at the spot and parked around 50 metres apart.

The storeyed building was maintained by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) and its executives reached the place to evaluate the condition.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis told about 15 families existed in the building. “Our focus right now is the people who are trapped, rescue operations are still on,” he said.
