Photos: Ten year old boy slipped into gutter and swept away by flood in Akwa Ibom
A ten year old boy yesterday slipped into gutter and was swept by flood into the underground tunnel constructed by Julius Berger at Nsikak Eduok Avenue in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
Sensing danger, his aunt with her few months old baby strapped on her back, leapt into the yawning tunnel for rescue. They were stucked. She was later rescued albeit unconscious with her baby girl still strapped on her back.
Sad, the poor little boy couldn’t be rescued – he was drowned by flood.
His Corpse was today found at Mbikpong Ikot Edim, Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area.
May his soul rest in peace – Amen.
