Under-construction building in Bengaluru collapses, 1 killed
At least one person died and two were missing after a five-storey building in India's technology hub of Bengaluru collapsed on Wednesday, local officials said. The building, which was still under construction, is situated in the city's Bellandur neighbourhood which is home to many upscale apartment blocks and offices of technology companies. The area, which surrounds a lake of the same name, has seen a construction boom in recent years.

Rescuers with dogs were still at scene late Wednesday. Four people have been pulled out from under the debris. Adid Inamdar, a manager at a nearby hotel who reached the scene minutes after the collapse said the team had pulled out one person whose leg was stuck inside the debris. "We could only see the back of another person. We removed the concrete blocks above him and he was bleeding profusely. His head was severely damaged."
