Tragedy in Mrauk-U as two family members killed in landslide

Two people, including a four-year-old child, were killed after part of a hillside in Arakan State’s Mrauk-U collapsed on Wednesday afternoon.

Local resident Maung Sein was quarrying at the foot of the hill in Myothit ward with his family when the rocks above them collapsed, burying his wife and two children in the rubble.

Their 12-year-old daughter was pulled out alive by local villagers and firefighters who arrived on the scene.

After two hours of digging and searching, the bodies of the wife and four-year-old child were recovered.
