Kanpur building collapse: 3-year-old girl rescued, several people still trapped under debris


The NDRF on late Wednesday night rescued a 3-year-old girl, who was trapped under the debris for hours after an under-construction building collapsed in Kanpur’s Jajmau. Many people were still trapped in the debris of the six-storey building and the rescue operation by NDRF and army was still on.

The incident took place at 1 pm on Wednesday night but the rescue operations are going on at a snail's pace as it is a big challenge for the NDRF team to search out for people. 

The NDRF team is taking the help of trained dogs and Victim Locating Camera (VLC) to locate those people who could be still alive but trapped.

Hydraulic Drill Machine and Gas Cutter are also being used to rescue people. According to NDRF Commander Kaushalesh, this is a big challenge and will take time.

However, the rescue of the 3-year-old girl has raised hopes that more people will be taken alive. Meanwhile, cases have been registered against the owner and contractor of the building under various sections.
