Two die in building collapse following mudslide in Kollam
Kollam: Two men died after a mudslide hit a building at Paripally near Paravur in Kollam. Three others sustained injuries in the incident. The deceased have been identified as Ranjith and Chanthu.
Mudslide occurred on Friday at about 3 am and fell on to a building which housed five men.
Debris of an old theatre were dumped near the building. In the heavy rain that lashed the area, a boundary wall built close to the building was damaged and collapsed onto the building. Along with this, the debris dumped here also fell over the building.
Sources said the deceased Ranjith and Chathu were mahouts. Their bodies have been shifted to Parippally Medical College Hospital.
