Thane: Four members of a family, including two children, were injured when the ceiling of their house collapsed in Mumbra township of Thane district this morning.
While the family members were sitting in a room of their house in a building on third floor at Zarina Compound in Mumbra, a plaster of the ceiling collapsed on them, Thane civic body's Regional Disaster Management Cell officer Santosh Kadam said.
