Four-year-old dies after falling into pond near Poomala

h

POOMALA: Dheerav (4), the son of Shalu, fell into a pond and died in Mundattuchunda, Idukki while grazing a cow with his aunt in a neighbour's field. The accident occurred at 11 a.m. yesterday at Koovakandam near Velliamattam, Poomala.

After the aunt tied the cow, she did not see the child and assumed he had gone home. When she returned home and didn't find him, she went back and found the child's shoe on the pond's bank. After raising an alarm, nearby women retrieved the child from the pond. He was immediately rushed to Thodupuzha District Hospital, but his life could not be saved.

Dheerav is the grandson of Shaji and Jhansi in Mundattuchunda and he lived with them. His mother, Shalu, is in Andhra. The deep pool is concealed by litter making it hard to identify. The body was moved to the district hospital for post-mortem.
