At least half a dozen people died in a building collapse in Mumbai, and authorities fear that dozens more could be trapped inside the rubble. Twenty seven people were pulled from the rubble, including an 11-year-old girl, who rescuers could hear shouting from within the wreckage. 
The building, an old 5-story residential tower, gave way at about 6 a.m. on Friday morning, when nearly all the 100 or so residents were likely home. This is the 5th building collapse in the Indian city this year.
