PESHAWAR: In the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, tragic incidents of roof collapse have resulted in the loss of nine lives and injuries to 11 individuals due to continuous rainfall since yesterday.

According to reports from Rescue 1122, the victims included five children, a woman and a man who lost their lives in roof collapse incidents in Peshawar, Lower Dir, Bajaur, Wadi Tirah and Malakand regions. The ongoing rains and snowfall have also led to the deaths of several animals and financial losses due to roof collapses in various districts.

One such devastating incident occurred in Batkhela and village Aladhand Dheri, where a mother and daughter lost their lives when their house’s roof collapsed, leaving six others injured. In another heart-wrenching event near Batkhela Khatke Cemetery, the roof of a house caved in, trapping Noor Rehman, his wife, and their three daughters under the rubble.

Thanks to the swift response of Rescue 1122 teams, Noor Rehman’s wife and two daughters were rescued and rushed to DHQ Hospital Batkhela in critical condition. Tragically, wife Noor Rahman and their 5-year-old daughter Mah Noor did not survive.

Additionally, in the village of Adha Dhand Dhiri Saro Koto, another roof collapse trapped three women under debris.
