“Six people including her were there. Everyone was able to run out of the house except her youngest daughter-in-law, grandchild, and herself. She was coming out slowly when she got trapped under the rubble of the house. She was holding her grandson who died that day. My daughter-in-law was also brought here but now she is back home. Others survived but were injured a little. People dug out lots of mud. Then they saw a part of my head and took out after an hour. I got hurt on my head, legs, and back. On the very day I was brought here by taxi which was brought from Kathmandu.”
