Rescue teams including fire tenders and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have rushed to the accident site.

The accident site is located inside a narrow lane causing difficulty for the rescue teams. Television images showed rescue teams removing debris by bare hand. Ambulances have been parked at some distance away from the actual collapse site as the lanes are too narrow for them to enter.

Local residents have formed a human chain to help the rescue teams in removing debris as it difficult for big machines to reach the  spot. The area was flooded recently when Mumbai witnessed heavy rains. As per media reports, the building which came down crashing today was not included in the list of dangerous ones maintained by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
