3 boys found dead in under-construction stormwater trench

Three boys – two 10-year-olds and one 9-year-old – were found dead in an
under-construction stormwater trench in Hammanskraal on Saturday afternoon.

City of Tshwane spokesperson Thabo Mabaso said it was not yet clear what
had happened, but added there had been heavy rain in the Tshwane area on Friday
and Saturday.

The stormwater trench was under construction in Tambo Extension 1, near
the traffic department.

Mabaso said the boys might have been playing in the area but the police
investigation would focus on the cause of their death.

The boys were declared dead by paramedics.

“The scene has been handed over to the South African Police Service
for a full investigation into how this tragedy occurred,” he added.

“The City of Tshwane offers its condolences to the bereaved families
and all affected by the untimely passing of the young boys.”
