The watchman of a government school near Avinashi in Tirupur district was killed, when the wet wall of his house fell on him early today.

According to police, Makali (60), a resident of Oomeyanchettipalaym, after his night duty, returned home and sat leaning on a wall in his house in the morning.

Suddenly, the wall he was leaning collapsed and Makali, who was caught under the debris, died on the spot, they said.
