(July 6, 2007)
A wedding in Nepal turned tragic when a tractor pulling a
trailer filled with children and other guests in a wedding
procession skidded off a road and into a canal. The acci-
dent took place in Barthathawa Village in rural southern
Nepal, about 125 miles southeast of the capital, Katman-
du. Nine children and two adults were killed in the acci-
dent, and 2 more passengers were seriously injured,
according to Sitaram Pohhrel, the chief government ad-
ministrator for that area. The two injured were being
treated in a local hospital. It’s unclear exactly what caused
the tractor to veer off the road, but Pokhrel said the
accident was being investigated.
