The incident took place as the wall of a five-storied building collapsed in the slums of Behrampada. It was around 1:30 PM that the fire department received a call that a portion of the building had collapsed.
Rescue efforts are underway and a woman has been spotted under the debris calling out for help. Two children were rescued from the debris and rushed to hospital.
Situated in a densely populated area the rescue efforts by fire department were slowed down as buildings adjoining the collapsed structure could cave in. The wall-to-wall construction of buildings in the area makes any rescue effort very risky.
