A three-storey residential building on Mumbai's outskirts collapsed Friday, killing two children and trapping more people inside, in the city's third such incident in recent months, officials said.
"There are two dead, one is a two-month-old girl and one is a seven-year-old boy. There are more trapped inside and rescue operations are in full swing," said Sandeep Malvi, spokesman for the Thane municipal corporation.
He said the reason for the early morning collapse of the structure, built in 1979, was not yet clear.
