At least seven people were killed on 15 May when a wall of an under-construction mall collapsed in Andhra Pradesh's Guntur city.

The accident occurred when a 30-feet deep cellar was being dug for a proposed multi-storey building at the Lakshipuram area in Guntur. A sudden landslip occurred, trapping eight of the workers inside. While one worker was rescued, the other seven lost their lives.

The district collector and other officials rushed to the accident site. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu also went to the site to oversee the rescue efforts.

Rescue teams from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Fire and Emergency Department rushed to the site.
