Child plunges to death in an open manhole

A Saudi child plunged to his death into a manhole that was left uncovered by a construction company in the Gulf Kingdom, a newspaper said on Thursday.

Police had failed to find the missing child after a search of several hours in the western port of Yanbu following a report by his family, Sabq said.

“They then suspected that he might have fallen in a manhole in the area…civil defence divers who were called in found the child dead inside the pit which was half filled with water,” the paper said without specifying the boy’s age.
