The wall had weakened due to heavy rains

A woman and her two sons died Tuesday night in Rawalpindi’s Morgah after a wall of their house collapsed.

The wall had weakened due to heavy rainfall in the city.

There were 11 people in the house, all of whom were asleep when the incident occurred. The debris of the wall fell on the woman and one of her sons, who died on spot.

After the wall collapsed, the house was flooded with water. The water swept away two other children. One child was rescued from a nearby canal, authorities said.

Rescue teams are searching for the body of the other child. The remaining family members were taken to a safe location.
