The pain of losing a child is the nightmare of every parent. Each year, little children lose their lives due to mishaps and diseases. Sadly, many of these deaths are caused by human-related efforts. The thing is that young children do not possess a fully developed intelligence hence they cannot avoid danger as they lack the experience to do so.
It is our duty as parents or adults to keep a watchful eye on the little ones so we can protect them from anything dangerous which could be of harm to them. For instance, each year, little kids lose their lives as a result of drowning. Most of these drownings happen in manmade structures like swimming pools, ponds or dams.
The body of a 12-year-old boy has been retrieved from the Seshego Dam in Polokwane. Kubu Mashilo's body was found following a drowning incident which took place this past Saturday. It was gathered that two boys, aged 8 and 12, fell into the dam when their manmade boat capsized.
