Police say a five-storey building that had caved-in collapsed onto the other building around 5.00 am today (20) , trapping several people inside.
A rescued woman said a concrete slab collapsed onto their building with a big sound.
Despite being trapped, she managed to use her mobile phone to alert the police emergency, who came to her rescue.
She said two of her relatives, a couple, are still trapped in a room.
A one-and-a-half-months-old infant was rescued, but died in hospital later.
Police request the public to refrain from visiting the location.
