A four-story building has collapsed in Mumbai’s Dongri area. Between 40 and 50 people are feared trapped in the rubble and emergency services are already on scene.

The building is believed to have collapsed approximately 11:40am local time. The local fire brigade and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have deployed multiple tenders to the area to assist with evacuations and rescue operations.

The area, which contains many dilapidated buildings, was subject to heavy flooding in recent weeks which may have contributed to the collapse.
