MUMBAI, India (September 27, 2013)--At least eight people were confirmed dead, but the death toll could go much higher, after the collapse of an apartment building Friday in India's financial capital of Mumbai.
More than 30 people have been rescued from the rubble, but a similar number are still missing, and the search is continuing.
There were cheers earlier from hundreds of onlookers as rescuers plucked a small girl alive from the collapsed building, and carried her through a tunnel that was dug through the rubble.
The disaster was the third deadly building collapse in six months in Mumbai.
At least 72 people died in April when an illegally constructed building collapsed.
At least ten others died in June when a three-story building collapsed.
