At least five people have been killed and 13 others wounded when a building under construction collapsed in India's western state of Gujarat.
The incident took place at around 8:30 p.m. local time (1500 GMT) on Friday in Ahmedabad, located 915 kilometers (569 miles) from the capital New Delhi, as a five-storey building suddenly caved in, Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday.
Rescue workers were mobilized to the site in order to find possible survivors.
Ambulances also shifted the bodies and the wounded to nearby hospitals.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, local safety authorities said.
Rescue operations are ongoing, with excavators trying to remove the debris and help those still trapped under the rubble.
Poor construction material and inadequate foundations are blamed for building collapses in India.
The weak enforcement of laws and corruption are generally blamed for unauthorized building in the country.
