Quoting Radio New Zealand – 10 September 2019
“The Gizo community in Solomon Islands' Western Province is mourning the death of a woman who was killed in a landslide this morning.
“The slip, which happened between 7 and 8 o'clock this morning, buried the primary school teacher and her daughter.
“Rescuers worked through torrential rain and strong winds to try and reach the pair but were only able to get the daughter out alive. The teenager is in a stable condition at the Gizo hospital.
“The mother was eventually found but she had suffered a blow to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.
“The slip took place at Malakerava and covered part of the living quarters of the Gizo Corrections Services.
“The woman was married to the Commandant of Corrections who was also in the house but managed to escape with their two sons. The father has been admitted to hospital for treatment.
