Death toll climbs to 25 in India building collapse

MUMBAI, India (AP) - Authorities say 25 people are now confirmed dead in a collapsed apartment building in India's financial capital of Mumbai.
    
Rescuers working overnight pulled more bodies from the rubble.  National Disaster Response Force commander Alok Awasthi said that 25 bodies were found by Saturday morning.
    
The five-story building caved in early Friday morning, trapping dozens and launching an intense rescue mission. At least 32 trapped residents, including a small girl found nearly 12 hours into the search, have been rescued.
    
The disaster was the third deadly building collapse in six months in Mumbai. India's high demand for housing, shoddy construction and lax inspections make such disasters relatively common.
