Death toll from India building collapse climbs to 33

The search is gradually winding down for survivors of a building collapse in India’s financial capital, Mumbai as the toll from the disaster rose to 33.

Rescuers sifted through the rubble of the more than a century old building in a desperate search.

There is no reliable estimate of those still missing in the second such collapse in a little over a month.

A total of 46 people have been pulled from the rubble since the collapse early on Thursday morning.

Police are yet to determine the cause of the disaster which occurred in a densely-populated area of the city.

Many of the residents had stayed on even after authorities declared the structure unsafe in 2011.

People had been reluctant to leave because they had not received details of alternative housing.
