Six of a family suffocate to death in KP’s Hangu
PESHAWAR – Six members of a family died of suffocation caused by a gas leak in Hangu city on Tuesday.
Reports in local media said the tragedy struck the family in the Gulshan Colony of Hangu, a city around 110km from the provincial capital, where the deceased forgot to switch off a gas heater.
Likewise, in many of the tragedies in the past, the gas supply was suspended during the night and when it started again the gas filled the room where the family was sleeping causing their deaths. The deceased person included a man, two women, and three children.
It was revealed as the neighbours grew suspicious after the family did not wake up till late in the morning.
Receiving no response on knocking on the door, the neighbors decided to break the door. As the neighbors came into the bedroom, they saw all six of the family lying dead in their beds.
