A five-storey residential block collapsed in Mumbai at daybreak on Friday leaving up to 70 people feared trapped inside, in the latest building disaster to hit India's financial capital.
Crowds formed around the rubble of the completely flattened block, owned by the city's civic administrative body, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, in the east of the city.
"My son is inside. I'm waiting for them to get him out," distraught 62-year-old retiree Mithi Solakani told AFP as rescue workers scrambled over tonnes of debris.
