Mumbai, Aug 14 (UNI) Most of the people injured in the 70-year-old three-storeyed 'Dutta' building collapse in the city yesterday were fast asleep and they regained consciousness after an hour of the tragedy.

Speaking to UNI here today, survivors Narendra Chaurasia, Brindavan Das and Manoranjan Dutta said they do not recall what happened as they were fast asleep.

''I deal in wholesale of betel leaves and when I regained consciousness after an hour I was completely shocked and shattered and was trembling,'' said Mr Chaurasia.

Mr Das and Mr Dutta, who work as domestic help, said they could have done something to escape or save themselves from injuries, but this was not destined.

21 people died in the building collapse and 26 others were injured, out of which seven were sent back after treatment.

In the accident, the Chaurasia family had lost seven members, Salunkhes six and Chauhans four members.
