Two children were killed and two others were injured when the roof of a house collapsed in Bajaur.
According to details in Odigram, a remote hilly area of Salarzai Tehsil, Bajaur District, near the Pak-Afghan border, the roof of a house collapsed while four children were playing under the roof. As soon as Rescue 1122 was notified, locals rushed to the spot and with their help removed the debris from the children. As a result, Hajj Bibi daughter of Saleem 4 years old and Baitullah son of Saleem 3 years old had lost their lives on the spot, while Zeba Bibi daughter of Javed and Humabi Bibi daughter of Javed were taken out injured. Rescue 1122 provided first aid to the injured girls and rushed them to the district hospital where their condition is said to be out of danger.
It is to be noted that due to continuous rains and hailstorms for the last several days, the mud houses are not satisfactory. Most of the houses are dilapidated and there is a danger of further houses collapsing in the area. MPA Anwar Zeb Khan and the local administration expressed their grief over the tragedy and said that in this difficult time, we share their grief with the affected family.
