One person was killed and four others were hospitalized last night due to suffering breathing problems after climbing down a well to rescue a cat in Tiriheliya.
Initially one person had climbed down the 25 feet deep well after a cat had fallen in.
However he had suffered breathing difficulties and was unable to climb back out.
Therefore four more persons had climbed down to rescue them when they had also suffered breathing problems leaving them unconscious.
Residents in the area had later rescued all five persons and admitted them to Alawwa District Hospital where one individual had succumbed to injuries.
