One child killed in Mumbai landslide
A five-year old boy was killed and at least five others were injured in a landslide in a Mumbai suburb Thursday, officials said.
The accident occurred around 8.30 a.m. when a portion of a hill came crashing down on some hutments below near Ashok Nagar in Chembur, said an official of BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Disaster Management.
The five-year-old victim has been identified as Ganesh Khurade, while the injured have been rushed to Shatabdi Hospital here.
Mumbai, along with the coastal Konkan region, western and northern Maharashtra, has been lashed with incessant heavy rain the past few days. It has wiped out the rainfall deficit of June.
The heavy rain has resulted in flooding in hundreds of villages and scores of towns, overflowing rivers, lakes and reservoirs, as well as landslides and other obstructions which have disrupted life in the past five days.
