Dozens Feared Trapped After Deadly Building Collapse in India

iStock/Thinkstock(MUMBAI, India) -- Dozens are feared trapped after a multi-story residential building collapsed in Mumbai, India, Friday morning.

At least six people have been killed, according to the BBC.

Rescue workers are scrambling to find survivors beneath the layers of concrete rubble.  So far, at least 16 people have been pulled out alive, the BBC reports.

Tuesday's incident follows the collapse of a building in Mumbai in April and another in June -- both of which resulted in fatalities -- marking the third deadly building collapse in India's financial capital in the last six months.

Some neighborhood residents are now worried that other nearby buildings could collapse as well.
