A family of six from Nilakottai Panchayat in Pandalur Taluk in The Nilgiris had a miraculous escape when their house caved in a little before dawn on Tuesday. According to sources, following heavy rain in the last two days, a portion of a wall of the house caved in.

The sound of the wall caving in woke up Kalimuthu and his family members, who managed to exit the house in the nick of time. None was injured. In a similar incident in Pushpagiri in Gudalur, the roof of a house collapsed when a tree fell.

Gudalur Fire and Rescue Services personnel removed the tree.
