A five-story residential block collapsed in Mumbai at daybreak on Friday, killing at least 13 people and trapping dozens, in the latest building disaster to hit India's financial capital.

By Friday night, rescue workers had managed to pull out nearly 50 survivors from the debris of the flattened block, owned by the civic administrative body, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, in the east of the city.
