AIZAWL, April 18 - A four-month-old girl was crushed to death when a tree fell on her house at Sairang village, about 30 km from here, during a rainstorm that lashed several parts of Mizoram on Saturday afternoon.
Sources said Lallawmkimi, daughter of Bishnu, was in deep sleep when a huge tree fell on her house. The house is located near a stream in the Dinthar area of Sairang.
Though she was rushed to a nearby hospital, the doctors could not save her life. Aizawl West-I MLA Zothansanga visited the bereaved family and offered his condolences.
The rainstorm, which lasted for a few hours, damaged several houses at Muthi village near Aizawl and elsewhere. A detailed report of the damage caused by the rainstorm is still awaited.
