NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- The collapse of a seven-story residential building Wednesday evening killed at least 26 people and injured 11 others in the Indian city of Mumbai, hospital officials said.

Officials said up to 25 people are feared trapped beneath the remnants of the building, although rescue workers did pull a survivor from the debris on Thursday.

Reuters reported that about 15 people had been removed alive, several with serious injuries.
