Following monsoon rains, an Indian school building collapsed in Uttarakhand, a state in Northern India. At least 18 children have been killed. Six children have been saved, but officials are sure there are many, many more children trapped under the debris.

The monsoon rains have been heavily affecting the region for some time now. The collapse took place in a village called Sumgarh. A cloudburst killed 185 people earlier this month.

Rescue attempts are continuing.
