25th Nov, 2017

THANE: A senior citizen was killed while three others suffered injuries after part of a third floor slab of a 20 year old building collpased in the Wagle estate area of Thane city.

The incident happened post midnight when the slab of the living room of a third floor flat in the vijay niwas apartment caved in. "The floor of the upper floor flat belonging to the Pathare family suddenly collapsed on the lower floor flat occupied by the Ghosh family," informed Santosh Kadam of the TMC.

While two members of the Pathare family suffered minor injuries, two senior citizens from the Ghosh family got seriously injured after a massive chunk of the plaster fell on them as they were sleeping in the same room. The impact of the collpase was so bad that it killed Babloo (60) on the spot while his wife Bani suffered a fracture. Nina Pathare (F/ 51) and her daughter Yasamin (F/ 22) also got limb injuries.

The Rdmc and fire brigade officials who reached the spot evacuated all the residents staying in the 37 flats early Friday.
