Mudslide Kills School Caretaker
The caretaker's house was situated on the school grounds at Westcliff Secondary School.
A steep bank and wall behind it collapsed onto it washing sand onto & into the house killing everyone inside. Sadly they stood no chance against the mud slide and didn't manage to get out in time. Their bodies were dug out of the mud by teams who worked through Monday night and most of Tuesday.
