Bangladesh mother throws herself, daughters under train
A woman killed herself and baby daughter by jumping under a
train in eastern Bangladesh, but a second daughter survived the murder-suicide,
a railway official said Saturday.
The unidentified woman, 30, jumped with her two children into the path of a train near Kishoreganj, 240 kilometres east of the capital Dhaka, security guard Abdul Alim Chowdhury said.
The mother died on the spot and the 2-year-old daughter also succumbed to injuries on way to a local health clinic, he said.
But rescuers were able to save the 4-year-old daughter, he said, according to dpa.
