Three well-diggers crushed to death by mudslide in Mailsi

MAILSI, APR 02 (DNA) — Three young labourers including a 10-year-old child were crushed to death by a mudslide while digging a well in Mailsi. The rescuers on Sunday pulled out the bodies of the labourers from the well with the help of local people after a hectic 19-hour long rescue operation.


The bodies have been handed over to the heirs. Poverty drove the ill-fated young labouers to come out of their home and eke out their living. But the death did not let them go back. Rescue sources said that the victims belonged to the same family.


The dead were identified as 20-year-old Sajjad Ahmed, 17-year-old Zameer Ahmed and 10-year-old Muhammad Shaban. Seeing the dead bodies of three young persons, the atmosphere in the area turned melancholic. — DNA
