At least seven people are dead after a building collapsed in Indore, in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, according to a local medical official.
Three others have been injured, two of whom are in critical condition, according to Dr. Amarnath Yadav, the chief medical officer at Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital. Officials on the ground said it’s unclear if others may be trapped inside.
A preliminary investigation revealed that a heavy vehicle rammed into a hotel’s ground floor, which may have caused the collapse, said Deputy Inspector General of Police Harinarayana Chari Mishra. Rescue workers were clearing debris and continuing the rescue mission.
