Yadagiri: Four members of a family died as a tractor on which they were travelling plunged into the canal in Narayanpura in Jogundabavi village of Surapura taluk here.

The deceased were moving on the tractor to Narayanpura canal for washing clothes. As the driver was reversing the vehicle it plunged into the canal.
