Eight Killed as Wall Collapses in Mumbai

Thane, Jun 16 (IANS): Eight people were crushed to death in sleep when a wall collapsed in Mumbai's Thane area early Wednesday, police said.

The incident took place around 4.30 a.m. when the boundary wall of Dosti Constructions in Vartak Nagar suburb of Dyaneshwar Nagar area here suddenly collapsed on the hutments adjacent to the wall, trapping the people who were fast asleep.

Relief operations were underway by the police and fire brigade officials to rescue the people trapped in the debris.
