According to NDTV, a man who was trapped under the rubble of a collapsed building in Karnataka, a state in India for over 62 hours was brought out safely by rescue teams this morning.

The number of people who died after the four-storey building collapsed in Karnataka’s Dharward earlier this week has gone up to 15.  Four to six people are still trapped in the debris as rescue teams are continuing the operation for the fourth day. As many as 55 people were injured in the incident.

Senior Karnataka police officer MN Reddi shared a video of Somu, in green shirt, being rescued from the rubble. Visibly disturbed and shocked, the young man was seen walking out with the support of policemen. An officer embraced him just as a stretcher was brought to his aid.

64 people have been rescued so far.

The four-storey building, some portions of which were under construction, crumbled in Dharwad’s Kumareshwar Nagar, about 400 kilometres north of Bengaluru, on Tuesday.

Over 300 personnel, including the National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF), State Disaster Response Force (SDRF), fire and emergency forces are on the ground to provide assistance to relief operations.
