Bhubaneswar: A middle-aged couple was killed early Monday when their house collapsed in Odisha`s Subarnapur district, police said.

The incident occurred at Jambhalipali village, about 300 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, when 40-year-old Nata Nayak and his 35-year-old wife Surabali Nayak were asleep.

A wall, which was weakened and was in a dilapidated condition due to incessant rains for the last few days, collapsed on the couple.

Local residents took the couple to a hospital where doctors declared them dead.

The couple is survived by two daughters and a son who had a miraculous escape, police inspector NR Sarangi told a news agency.
