*It’s a tragic reality that every day at least one child’s death from drowning is reported in local media. Normally CNE does not cover the incidents, not because they are unimportant, but because they stir up both anger and grief. However, to highlight the issue, we have decided to publish this story and ask all parents and guardians to take care of children and prevent such grossly unnecessary deaths.
