MUMBAI (Reuters) – An 117-year-old condemned building collapsed in Mumbai yesterday after two days of torrential rain, killing at least 21 people, with some feared trapped. Thirteen people were rescued and were recovering in hospital, with six firemen also injured in the six-storey building, the chief fire official said. “There was a massive bang. We couldn’t see anything due to the dust and smoke. Once the dust settled, we realised it was a building collapse,” said area resident Amina Sheikh. Disaster struck early in the morning after two days of heavy rain that flooded the city and killed 14 people. The collapse was the second in the financial capital in a little over a month.
