Ho Chi Minh City boy dies after falling into sewer
An eight-year-old boy died in Ho Chi Minh City Friday after falling into a sewer in Binh Chanh District. Tran Dinh, a second-grade student at the Vo Van Tan primary school, was returning home from school when he fell into a deep pit in front of his school.
He got stuck in a sewer inside and died of asphyxiation.
The pit has no fence around it and is surrounded by wet, slippery grass.
Truong Thi Kim Cuong, the victim’s mother, lamented: “Students’ parents have asked for a fence to be built around the dangerous pit but no one has done it so far.”
