NEW DELHI; 32 Killed in Residential Building Collapse



New Delhi, India -- At least 32 people were killed and another 40 were hurt when a five-story residential building collapsed Monday night in the Indian capital, an official said.

Rescue efforts were under way to free another two dozen people who may be trapped, Delhi Fire Service Chief R.C. Sharma told CNN.

But numbers were unclear: Police Commissioner B.K. Gupta told CNN sister network CNN-IBN that 89 people were injured in the collapse. And New Delhi municipal spokesman Deep Mathur said fire officials estimated that as many as 20 people could still be trapped.

Video from the scene showed residents digging through debris with construction equipment. Rescuers carried dust-covered victims to waiting vehicles.

The building apparently collapsed because its foundations had weakened after exposure to water from this year's heavy monsoons, said City Municipal Spokesman Deep Mathur and Chief Minister of New Delhi Sheila Dikshit. The structure was situated closely to the Yamuna River that flows through New Delhi.

"I believe it's an unauthorized building," Dikshit said. "I believe there was water in the bottom of the basement for many days."

She expressed sympathy for the families of the dead and promised to "inquire into the causes of the tragedy."



Many more people were trapped under debris after the building on the Indian capital's east side collapsed, said B.K. Gupta, New Delhi police commissioner.

Local residents, who were the first to reach the scene of the accident, used their bare hands to scoop away mud and mortar and pull out survivors.

Emergency efforts were hampered as fire engines found it difficult to navigate the narrow alleys of the residential neighborhood of Lalita Park.

Well there's a high-rise building on fire in China which killed 70-something people.

Where did you find that? I see the one with 5 dead and thousands homeless....but that was Nov 7.

Anyway, how does a 5 story residential building just collapse?
