Nurse dies as roof bar collapses near Larkana


LARKANA: A nurse died of roof bars collapsed in Mad Baho village near Bakrani on Wednesday. Lal Khatoon, a nurse, was sitting in the office of Female Medical Officer of Basic Health Unit (BHU) in Mad Baho village when the cemented roof bars fell on her.

The building of the BHU was constructed over 15 years ago and was inaugurated by former PML-Q Minister Haji Altaf Hussain Unar, but sources said that its roof had no rain-water flow, and recent monsoon rain water remained stagnant there for some days, causing roof collapse. The roof seeping continued since many years, but nobody took the pains to get it repaired. The BHU is managed by PPHI and deceased was its employee.
