In a heartbreaking incident that shook Greater Noida on Sunday, two young siblings, aged five and three, lost their lives after the ceiling of their residence collapsed. Authorities confirmed the devastating event, which unfolded in Samadhipur village within the jurisdiction of Dadri police station. The collapse not only claimed the lives of the innocent children but also left four individuals, including construction workers, injured. 

According to a spokesperson from the police department, ongoing repairs were in progress at the residence. Specifically, construction activities involving the laying of bricks on the building's second floor were being carried out at the time of the incident. "Due to excessive weight on the upper roof, it fell on the middle-level roof (first floor), which eventually fell down on the ground floor where the two granddaughters of Lal Singh were playing," the police official said. "The two children got trapped under the debris. They were soon brought out and rushed to hospital for treatment but they died during the treatment," the official added.
