Another child has become the country’s latest drowning victim.
The victim from Dakuni Village, Beqa was found by her mother floating near the sea wall yesterday morning. She was conveyed to the Beqa Health Centre but was unfortunately pronounced dead.
A post mortem has since confirmed the cause of death as drowning.
The drowning toll stands at 26 compared to 36 for the same period last year.
Once again we are requesting parents and guardians to take the issue of supervision seriously particularly if living near bodies of water.
It is always sad to receive cases of this nature especially tragedy can be avoided simply by closely monitoring your children’s whereabouts at all times.
