At Tuesday midnight an accident occurred at a church near Victoria Chock, in Dharan, Nepal resulting in the death of 23 people including 4 children. It occurred around 11:30 p.m when the four storey makeshift bamboo house which was being built for a religious ceremony being organized at Seyon church collapsed. I would like to express my sympathy to the families. May their souls rest in peace.

Dear Jodelight,

One of my relatives home is only 5 min far from the accident. Today I talked with him and he said he has also lost his friend in that accident. Many people were from Jhapa district. they came Dharan in search of better employment. Most of them were parents and their children were in home. It is also said that many children have become orphan after the accident.

Bahini, I was saddened to read about this tragedy. I have not seen anything about it in the news so appreciate you telling us. Hajur la kasto cha? Malai sanchai chha. I am with my family in New Zealand but will return soon.

Please update us on news of the survivors and we will be thinking of them and their families. Dherai Maya, Janice

Even it was a big trageddy but there was no more information in Media about the tragedy. I wonder why media aren't being responsible.

Sure I will be updating about the survival situation. Thank you so much for your comment.

Hi Sunita,

Thank you for sharing this and giving voice to those who lost their lives since it did not appear in the media.

My sympathies to your relatives and friends who lost a love one.



Hello Heather,

These days nepali media give more priority to celebrates rather than listening public voices and others issues. Not only in the case but also currently there is a diarrhea outbreak but there is no media attention. "INSEC record shows the death toll of diarrhea is 464 in 18 districts of Mid and Far Western Regions from April 30 to September 18 2009."

Thank you so much for your sympathies.
