Even though Bhagyashree Kamble, came out weeping at around 1 pm, six hours after the building collapsed at 6 am in the morning, the NDRF and fire brigade personnel were jubilant to see that she had a miraculous escape.

Except dust all over her body, Bhagyashree did not suffer any major injury.

As soon as she was pulled out, the rescue team rushed her to the JJ Hospital for the treatment.
