Rescuers had recovered seven bodies from debris as 8:40 p.m. on Saturday after an under-construction building collapsed on Saturday afternoon in central China's Hubei Province.

At least 10 construction workers were buried after the four-story building toppled at around 5 p.m. at the Qiuzhigou Village of suburb Wuhan City, the provincial capital, said an official with the city's public security office.

The municipal authorities said the construction of the building, a private residence, is illegal because it had not been approved by local government.

More than 100 rescuers are searching for the missing, however, large rescue equipments, such grab and crane, can hardly got into the site because of the small alleyways.

Investigation into the cause of the accident.
