A residential apartment block collapsed in the northern Indian city of Lucknow on Tuesday and more than two dozen people were feared to be trapped under the rubble, local police officials told Reuters.

Indian media reported that at least three people died. Footage showing blocks of brick and concrete piled up together and police teams removing the rubble to search for people.


Lucknow city police officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment about fatalities due to the collapse.

An earthquake had been reported across northern India earlier in the day, though officials are yet to check if the tremors had weakened the old building.
