14 People Died in Residential Building Crash in Mumbai; 13 Injured
The toll in the Mumbai building crash has risen to 14 and at least 13 others, including a woman, were injured, the BMC (brihanmumbai municipal corporation) disaster control said on Tuesday.
According to officials, the entire wing of the ground-plus-three floor Naik Nagar Building in Kurla east suburb of northeast Mumbai crashed minutes before midnight, trapping many persons living there.
Earlier this afternoon, the rescuers had extricated 17 (all adult males) persons trapped under the debris, and recovered four bodies.
The injured were rushed to Rajawadi Hospital in Ghatkopar and LTMG Hospital in Sion.
As work continues amid intermittent showers to clear the mound of rubble, six more bodies were recovered and another six injured survivors were pulled out and rushed to hospital.
The rescue teams of Mumbai fire brigade and other agencies besides local volunteers, who joined the rescue efforts there, have expressed a potential risk to the adjoining second wing of the same building which could also collapse anytime.
The deceased have been identified as: Ajay M Pasnor, 28, Ajinkya Gaikwad, 34, Kumar Prajapati, 20, Sikandar Rajbhor, 21, Anoop Rajbhor, 18, Arvind R. Bharti, 19, Anil Yadav, 21, Shyam Prajapati, 18, and two others unidentified men.
Among the 13 injured, including a woman, four are admitted to hospital and the remaining nine have been discharged after treatment, as a hunt continues to extricate others feared buried under the debris.
