Another seven-year-old child Khalid, born in 2015, lost his life after falling into a well and drowning in it, in the province of Khémisset, in the douar Sebt Dar Ben Hssein (Maqam Talba) located at Caïdat Sidi Abderrazak, in the municipality of Tiflet.
The child with Down syndrome was playing near the 40 meter deep well and “would have fallen into the well, without anyone being able to notice it and drowned there” reported in several media. The well in question was used to supply drinking water, it is added.
It was only when looking for him that his family discovered that the child had fallen into this well.
Alerted, the regional command of the Royal Gendarmerie and several local officials went to the site, and participated in the recovery of the remains of little Khalid which was transported to the morgue of the Khémisset hospital, where it will be carried out an autopsy to determine the cause of death. The Royal Gendarmerie opened an investigation to determine the causes of this tragedy, which coincided with the funeral of little Rayan.
Until the death of little Rayan, falls into wells, which are frequent in our country, received little media coverage. The drama that the Kingdom has recently experienced in this regard and which has mobilized the country should not obscure other facts of this nature.
