ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) At least four people are dead and several others remain trapped after a building collapsed in India's western Maharashtra state, local media said on Wednesday (July 29). At least 10 people were injured and undergoing treatment at Shastrinagar hospital and Asian Institute of Medical Science (AIMS) hospital, officials said. Rescue workers worked through the night, sifting through the rubble of the collapsed building to look for people who might still be trapped underneath the debris. A nearly 50-member team of India's specialist National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) reached the scene and assisted the rescue operation. Some residents were able to rush out just in time before the building collapsed. Some local reports say heavy downpour in Thane over the last few days was behind the collapse.
