Three people were injured when a portion of a house fell on them in Chandigarh’s Manimajra. The harrowing accident occurred when the old house was being demolished, and was captured on CCTV.
The video shows a roof of the house suddenly collapsing while a woman and two children were passing by the area. The woman is critical and is being treated at Chandigarh’s PGIMER hospital.
The condition of the two seven-year-old children is being monitored as they undergo treatment at a hospital.
Soon after the video of the accident came to light, police registered a case against the landlord and the contractor. A probe is on.
In October, a two-month-old girl and a man were killed in their sleep while 14 labourers were injured when the floor of the basement of an under-construction building collapsed in Lucknow.
