Three dead in Spain after mountain of clothes falls on them: report


A Spanish couple and their 12-year-old daughter died after hundreds of kilos (pounds) of clothes they were stocking in boxes fell on them while they slept, a local daily reported Sunday.
The couple, who lived in the southeastern city of Alicante, were keeping the clothes in boxes stacked in their bedroom to sell them off again, according to the Diario Informacion.
Their eldest, 18-year-old daughter made the grim discovery on Saturday when she woke up, found that the flat was quiet, went into her parents’ room and found all the boxes collapsed on the bed, it said.
She couldn’t see her parents or her sister under what was estimated to be one to two tonnes of clothes, and called the police, it added.—APP
