IPOH: A senior citizen almost became a victim of a landslide that took place at a house in Kampung Padang Tamat, Pengkalan Hulu in Gerik, today.

A State Defence Force spokesman (APM) said they received information about the incident around 5.30pm.

“An elderly woman in her 60’s who was in the house during the incident escaped unharmed because the landslide occurred behind the house and did not cause any damage.
