THREE deaths in a family in a span of a week has family members shocked as they grieve the deaths of a woman and her three-year-old daughter who died at the Suva Bus Stand on Tuesday evening.

Seruwaia Rokoseru, 46, and Paulini Tubuna, 3, died when they were crushed between two buses on Monday afternoon.

Just a week ago, Mrs Rokoseru's first cousin Joeli Lutumailagi died in a vehicle accident in Nadi.

Joeli's elder brother and Mrs Rokoseru's cousin, Sitiveni Verekauta from Lami Village said the mother and daughter were to have returned to their village in Kadavu on Monday evening.

"They had come to buy things for their house they were extending in the village. They had just come on Monday and were staying with me," said Mr Verekauta.

"I told my cousin yesterday not to take her daughter with her as it was a busy day. Now we will have three burials on Kadavu.

"My younger brother, Joeli's body is going to Kadavu tonight (Wednesday). Now that the autopsy has been done, we will make arrangements for taking my cousin's and my niece's bodies to Kadavu as well."
