BANGALORE: A 14-year-old girl working at a construction site was killed when the compound wall of an adjoining building collapsed on her at Azad Nagar in Chamarajpet police station limits on Saturday.

The police said the girl identified as Tirumadi and her mother, Chinnapillai (40), were working along with 12 others at a site next to the house of Krishnappa.

When the workers were removing the earth next to the compound wall, a weak part of it fell on Tirumadi. The girl was shifted to hospital, where she died.
