According to a family member ” A portion of the house had collapsed on Thursday. Following this, the landlord had advised us to move down to their house in ground floor. However as the space was congested, we decided to stay back in the first floor till morning.”

We were planning to move to our sister’s house, but the incident occurred, he added.

He thanked both fire and police personnel for coming to their rescue.
