BINH DUONG (VNS) – The body of a nine-year-old boy who fell into a sewer during heavy rainfall on Saturday was recovered around midnight on Monday.
The body of La Van Ty was recovered at the end of the sullage pipe after several days of intensive search that involved dozens of rescuers and hundreds of residents.
Ty was reportedly swept away by waters into an uncovered sewer on Saturday during a heavy downpour that submerged the street in Thuan An town of Binh Duong Province.
The search team faced a lot of trouble as the sewage system was badly blocked by garbage and other items swept in by the heavy rain. The presence of toxic chemicals and lack of oxygen also delayed the search. – VNS
