Four children killed after live wire falls into pond

Four children including two siblings were killed after a live wire snapped and fell into a pool in India's northern state of Uttar Pradesh, police said Saturday.

The incident took place Friday evening in the village of Petiyan in Sambhal district, about 370 km northwest of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh.

"Last evening a live overhead electrical wire snapped and fell into a tubewell pond, where four children were bathing. The children were electrocuted," a police official posted in the district said.


"After a couple of hours, someone found the bodies of the children floating in the water. They were taken to hospital where doctors declared them dead."

Police have registered a case and ordered an investigation into the incident.
