Lahore (January 06, 2018): Six persons, four from a single family, died when a three-storey house in Lahore’s Delhi Gate area caved-in on Saturday .
The house’s occupants — a man named Ghulam Abbas, his wife and their two children — all lost their lives, although a third child was rescued and sent to the hospital for treatment.
A man and his child, who were heading towards the latter’s school, also got trapped under the debris and died.
According to reports the structure was in dilapidated condition before it collapsed, trapping the sextet underneath its debris.
Rescue 1122 workers said they faced great difficulties in their rescue efforts as the alley the house was located in had little room to bring in heavy machinery.
