Lorry floor collapses injuring 13 schoolchildren

Thirteen schoolchildren were injured when the floor of a lorry collapsed at Galenbindunuwewa yesterday.

The schoolchildren were travelling to school in a lorry as public transport has been badly affected due to the fuel shortage in the country.

Police said over 30 students had been on board of the lorry when the mishap occurred. The 13 injured students were admitted to the Galenbindunuwewa Hospital and three of them were transferred to the Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital for further treatment.
