    Mumbai rains: 3-story building collapses in India in heavy rain, kills 11

    The New Delhi Television channel said the building collapsed onto another structure in a slum in the Malad West area of Mumbai.

    A three-story dilapidated building collapsed following heavy monsoon rains in the western Indian city of Mumbai, killing at least 11 people and injuring seven others, police said. Dozens of rescuers were clearing the debris to find any residents possibly still trapped, police officer Ravindra Kadam said.
    Heavy monsoon rains during the day flooded several parts of the city that is Indias financial and entertainment capital. The New Delhi Television channel said the building collapsed onto another structure in a slum in the Malad West area of Mumbai.
    Residents joined the fire and police officers in rescuing people and they took the seven injured to a hospital in the suburban Kandivali area.
    Building collapses are common in India during the June-September monsoon season when heavy rains weaken the foundations of structures that are poorly built.
    In 2019, a three-story building collapsed in a hilly area in the northern Indian town of Solan following heavy rains, killing 14 people. A four-story building collapsed in Mumbai the same year and killed 10 people.
