At least six people were killed and several more are believed trapped in rubble when a residential building collapsed in India, authorities said.
The three-story building in the Thane district of Maharashtra state collapsed Tuesday night, Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation Mayor Kalyani Patil said.
At least 11 people have been rescued and hospitalized. But several people are still missing, and dozens of rescue personnel are trying to find them in the rubble of the building.
The area was raining heavily when the building collapsed.
The building was built in 1972. Residents had been warned to vacate the building, which was slated for demolition, Patil said. (CNN)
