HCM CITY (VNS) — A six-year-old boy who was swept away by a huge kite later died from his injuries in hospital in Hoc Mon Town, HCM City yesterday afternoon.

Initial investigations by Hoc Mon District Police found that the little boy was playing near a kite with a 20 metre wingspan when he was suddenly swept away. The kite was being used by a nearby club during rehearsals for a contest in Ba Ria–Vung Tau Province.

A tea stall owner named Quyen witnessed the incident, saying that at first, she mistook the boy for a teddy bear. It wasn't until she saw people rushing in vain to catch the boy that she realised what was going on.

Police are investigating the case further. — VNS
