India: 13 women and girls die after falling down well during marriage celebrations

The Guardian says thirteen women and girls have died after accidentally falling down a well during marriage celebrations in northern India, police said.

The victims were sitting on an iron slab covering the well on Wednesday when it gave way, senior police officer Akhil Kumar told reporters in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh state.

District magistrate S. Rajalingam said the well was old and could not take the weight of those sitting on the covering. “The victims fell down and were crushed under the debris,” he said on Thursday.
