The incident happened on Sunday night. The bodies of the family of Soman, his mother, wife, their daughter and her son have been removed from the debris.

Soman, a rubber tapper, was living with his family in a house near a hillock. On Sunday, a heavy downpour led to collapse of a portion of the land mass which fell over his small house.
