Mumbai hoarding collapse: 14 dead, 74 injured in Ghatkopar; FIR registered 

Following a massive hoarding collapse in Mumbai, the death toll has tragically risen to 14, with at least 74 individuals sustaining injuries. Overnight rescue operations, spearheaded by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), have been tirelessly underway to extricate those trapped beneath the debris.

NDRF Inspector Gaurav Chauhan disclosed that amidst the wreckage, eight bodies have been recovered. However, the challenging circumstances impede immediate retrieval of the remaining four bodies due to their entanglement within the rubble.

Chauhan elaborated that although the trapped individuals have been located, their extraction remains perilous, compounded by the presence of a nearby petrol pump, intensifying the hazardous conditions. Despite these challenges, rescue efforts persist unabated, as responders work diligently to navigate the precarious situation.

Meanwhile, President Droupadi Murmu and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar have expressed their heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families affected by the Ghatkopar tragedy. Additionally, they extend wishes for a swift and complete recovery to the injured individuals grappling with the aftermath of the hoarding collapse.

This calamitous incident underscores the critical importance of robust safety measures and infrastructure maintenance to prevent such disasters. As authorities continue their investigation into the causes of the collapse, the focus remains on ensuring the safety and well-being of the affected individuals and the broader community.
