Two-year-old dies after drowning in 30-cm fish pond #Singapore
died after drowning in a 30-cm deep fish pond on Wednesday. According to a Lianhe Zaobao report, a family member found the child unconscious in the fish pond in the morning. He was alone in the garden at his aunt's semi-detached house at Jurong West when he fell into the pond. His father said that while adults were home at that time, no one was watching over him. A neighbour told the Chinese evening tabloid that he heard loud barking, and then a shout for help originating from the house. A person rushed out and approached neighbours to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on the boy, who had turned pale. Police was informed of the accident at 11:45am. The boy was taken to National University Hospital but died at 10:20 pm on Wednesday night. On Thursday at the mortuary, the boy's father told The New Paper , "It was an accident. Nobody wanted this to happen."
