Lahore, Jul 16 (PTI) Six members of a family, including three children, were buried alive when the roof of their house collapsed in Pakistan's Lahore city.

The incident took place at Lahore’s thickly-populated area Shad Bagh on late Thursday night.

All six members of the family -- Sumaira Bibi (60), her son Ali (35), his wife Mehwish (30) and the couple's three children aged between one and eight -- were sleeping when the roof of their two-storey house collapsed, said Rescue official Muhammad Farooq.

The rescue team pulled out the six bodies from the debris.

'The cause of the roof collapse is the dilapidated condition of the structure and monsoon rains added further to it,' he said. PTI MZ PMS PMS
