One dead, four rescued as search operation concludes in India building collapse

At least one person was killed and four were rescued after a four-storey building collapsed in India’s western Ahmedabad city. The incident took place night after two blocks of the four-storey building collapsed. Rescue operation continued overnight to extricate the people trapped under the rubble. The search was called off on Monday morning and an official at India’s National Disaster Response Force H.M. Khatana said four persons were rescued alive while one was found dead. Building collapses in India are more common during the current monsoon season, aggravated by the use of poor building materials.
