A Northern Mexico shopping mall under construction in Monterrey, city of Mexico, collapsed on Thursday, killing at least seven people and nine missing, said officials.
During a press conference, the local council secretary Genaro Garcia told that 15 people were injured and all of the victims who died, are said to be construction workers.
Around 150 emergency personnel were searching for more people who might be trapped.
As per the authorities, the three-storey structure being built in Nuevo Leon state was being taken without the required license.
The concrete slabs of the structure looked to have pancaked, falling one after the other.
In a brief statement released by the civil defence office on Thursday night, said that nine people were still missing.
Not long, a shopping mall was opened in the southern Mexico which collapsed partially in July.
At the Artz Pedregal mall, a support beam failed, letting operators to vacate the mall in order that no one was injured when the top storey collapsed almost five minutes later.
