Heavy flood sweeps away pregnant woman, kills two others

Tragedy recently struck at some parts of Zinariya community in Jos, Plateau State leaving three people including a pregnant woman dead.

This was caused by a flood that swept through. 

It was gathered that the flood, which resulted from days of downpour, also brought down nine houses. 

“The incident resulted from narrow waterways; the victims were asleep when the rain started, but with the water soaking up the foundations of their buildings, the structures collapsed on them,” Sani Bello, a relation of the victims said.

He also said the water washed the bodies of the three deceased away.

“My pregnant elder sister, who was on a visit from Naraguta, a nearby community, was among the people washed away by the flood. We have found her body and buried it. There is also a lady with a broken leg who has been taken to the hospital. Another victim, one Ibrahim, who is seven years old, also sustained injuries and has been taken to the hospital.”
