Jennifer Orozco | LARA’S PRESS.- He fell without anyone noticing. A 6-year-old boy died in Licua, Crespo municipality, after falling almost two meters into a grave.
According to a police source, the minor was playing with some neighbors and they left the house without asking for permission. Apparently the elders were busy and the chamitos went to play on a vacant lot that is under construction nearby.
But in an oversight, the little one fell into a pit almost 2 meters deep. Although it did not emit sounds, the other children went to warn their parents, but when the older ones arrived it was too late, no matter how hard they tried to rescue, the little one had a fatal wound, because at the bottom of the pit there were rods that would be the bases of a column.
Police officials made the call to the Cicpc uniforms, who raised the boy’s body. He had a penetrating puncture wound to his chest, which killed him immediately.
Yesterday morning the boy’s relatives were preparing the paperwork, so they were not in the Barquisimeto morgue. A relative of the family explained that the boy had passed to first grade and was the second of three that the couple has.
This would be the fourth minor to die accidentally in less than a week, because last Tuesday a 3-year-old boy fell into a lagoon at home and drowned, in the La Ermita de Quíbor sector. On Thursday, two 10 and 8-year-old children died after activating a grenade that they found in a stream and the Cicpc determined the motive as an accidental death, which is still under investigation.
Authorities They call on adults to be aware of their young children, due to the fatal events of the last week. The police source assures that these facts are always investigated by the Cicpc, and although accidental, they could determine some responsibilities.
