At least 22 people were killed and nine others wounded when a seven-story building collapsed in Mumbai, officials said Thursday as rescue workers continued to dig through the rubble for survivors. At least 10 others were feared trapped in the rubble of the residential building in Mumbai's Borivali neighborhood, said Gopal Shetty, a state lawmaker. The building collapsed late Wednesday. Rescue workers toiled through the night, often pulling aside chunks of masonry with their bare hands, in an attempt to find survivors. "The priority is to rescue people who may be trapped inside," Shetty said.
