Beijing: At least 10 people were killed and 91 others injured when an auditorium collapsed during a wedding in eastern China, state media reported on Friday.

The incident took place last evening in Yazhuang village in Zhejiang Province when the wedding ceremony was underway and most people did not have time to escape.
Ten people were killed and over 91 others injured, including 11 in critical condition, the reports said.

Even though the cause of the collapse was being probed, local residents said the age of the building and accumulated snow on the roof may have triggered the collapse.
Over 100 rescue workers pulled dead and injured from the rubble, the reports said.
