Kottayam: A school building collapsed in Vaikom and no casualities were reported. The block on the west side of the Vaikom Govt Boys High School came down on Monday morning around 8.30.

The building comprised the science lab and the storage space for desks and benches. It collapsed just before the classes commenced for the day avoiding a big tragedy.

According to sources, the building was built more than 50 years back. But due to the ceiling work done all over the building, it is difficult to determine the correct age or renovate if required.
