The rescue authorities found the body of the minor in the village of Cerro Silvestre, district of Arraiján.

A sad event clouded this Saturday afternoon the tranquility of the neighborhood of Princesa Mía Fourth Stage, Arraiján district, when a child under 9 years of age played in the rain and accidentally fell into a sewer whose strong current dragged him and submerged him.

Both the Meritorious Fire Department of Panama Oeste and units of the National Civil Protection System ( Sinaproc ) and the Red Cross were given the task of looking for the minor who was dragged and found dead three hours later.

Sinaproc indicated that the body of the minor was located in the Cerro Silvestre sector.

Faced with this tragic situation, the authorities ask people to take care of children and refrain from crossing rivers or streams while there is bad weather.
