Five Killed in Building Collapse in Mumbai

At least five people were killed when a multi-story building collapsed in India's financial hub Mumbai on Friday.

Citing local officials, CNN's sister network IBN reported that around 40 people were feared to be buried in the rubble.

The building is owned by the city's municipal government and most of the people who lived in its apartments were city employees.

Building collapses are common in India, because builders often use substandard materials and multi-story structures are often built without adequate supervision.

At least 10 people were killed in June when an apartment building near Mumbai fell down.

In April, 74 people died in one of the worst building disasters in India's history, when a building being illegally constructed in a Mumbai suburb gave in.
