Couple killed as house collapses in Odisha

Bhubaneswar, Sep 9 : A middle-aged couple was killed early Monday when their house collapsed in Odisha's Subarnapur district, police said.

The incident occurred at Jambhalipali village, about 300 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, when 40-year-old Nata Nayak and his 35-year-old wife Surabali Nayak were asleep.

A wall, which was weakened and was in a dilapidated condition due to incessant rains for the last few days, collapsed on the couple.

Local residents took the couple to a hospital where doctors declared them dead.

The couple is survived by two daughters and a son who had a miraculous escape, police inspector N.R. Sarangi told IANS.

On Sunday, four people, including two minor girls, were killed in the temple town of Puri in coastal Odisha after a dilapidated two-storey building came down.

In another incident, two women of a family were killed when a cowshed collapsed at Ektali village in Balasore district the same day. Four cows were also killed in the incident.
