BEIJING – Rescuers pulled a pair of survivors from a collapsed building in central China yesterday, state media reported, two days into a search-and-rescue operation for dozens feared missing.

The building in Changsha city, Hunan province – which housed a hotel, apartments and a cinema – caved in Friday afternoon, leaving a gaping hole in the dense streetscape.

City officials on Saturday said five survivors had been pulled out of the structure. There are now 16 people believed to remain trapped, according to authorities, while no contact has been made with nearly 40 others.
