NEW DELHI, INDIA – Watching building implosions makes for some pretty cool video. But it’s a much different story when a building collapses while people are still inside.

In India, nearly 50 people were killed and dozens more injured after a building that was still under construction collapsed.

Authorities say people had been illegally occupying the first four floors of the buildings even though it hadn’t been completed. The eighth floor was still under construction when it gave way.

The man responsible for the building’s construction could also be facing homicide charges for allowing people inside before it was completed.

Officials believe poor construction is to blame, but they are still investigating.
