A four-story hotel building collapsed in central India, killing at least 10 people and injuring another three, police said Sunday. Rescuers worked through the night with sledgehammers and chainsaws. They pulled out 10 people from the debris of the building that came crashing down in Indore, a city in Madhya Pradesh state, on Saturday night, said police officer Sanju Kamle.
Up to five people may still be trapped under the rubble, said Nishant Warwade, the district collector.
The Times of India newspaper said the dilapidated building collapsed after a car smashed its front portion. The hotel with 25 rooms was located in the commercial hub of Indore.
