Although all the labourers were recovered alive by Rescue 1122 personnel, the condition of some of them was stated to be precarious in the hospital.

The residents of the area told journalists that the factory was located along the railway line and its building was crumbling. “Today the roof collapsed when a train passed through the building and all the labourers working inside buried alive under the debris,” they added.
