An under-construction Metro pillar collapsed in Bengaluru's Nagavara on Tuesday morning, killing a mother and her two-and-a-half year old son. The father also sustained injuries in the incident.
The family were traveling on the road on their bike when they came under the pillar. The identities of the deceased are yet to be ascertained. The injured were being treated at a hospital. However, the woman and her child succumbed to their grave injuries shortly after, while the man is still being treated.
The iron bars of the pillar had been fixed and were yet to be concretised.
The pillar was part of the Namma Metro's operations to the city's Kempegowda International Airport, which is set to be opened to the public by the end of the year.
