Mud, Rain Hamper Landslide Rescue In India
Rescuers searching for dozens of people still missing after a landslide in western India said Friday that sniffer dogs and machines sent to detect signs of life were all but useless, in 15 feet of heavy mud and debris. The landslide engulfed Malin village, in Pune district of Maharashtra state, on Wednesday, killing at least 63 people–including nine children. Chances of finding anyone alive are increasingly slim. Landslides are common in the area during the monsoon season, which runs from June through September.
