Eleven pulled alive from rubble in China building collapse

Rescue services pulled out 11 people alive from a collapsed building in China's financial hub of Shanghai on Thursday (May 16), and about same number are believed to be still trapped in the rubble.

The building in Shanghai’s Changning district was being renovated when it collapsed late in the morning, trapping some 20 people inside, fire services said in a statement.

Witnesses heard a big bang which lasted for five to six second and a cloud of dust that enveloped the building.

More than 150 rescuers are on the scene but they have not said how the building collapsed.
