A three-year-old has died after he was found stuck inside a slide unnoticed for hours at a kindergarten in Hanoi.
The incident happened at Phu Lo Kindergarten in Soc Son District, Hanoi on Monday, the district’s office of education and training confirmed on Wednesday.
Preliminary information showed that the young boy was playing on the slide at the kindergarten’s playground when he was stuck inside a closed tube unnoticed by others.
When a teacher found him later the same day, the child was already in very poor health.
He received first-aid at the school’s clinic before being transferred to the emergency facility at the Vietnam National Children’s Hospital in Hanoi.
However, doctors were unable to save the little boy.
Tran Thi Thanh Hue, a representative from the office of education and training in Soc Son District, stated that competent authorities are investigating the case to determine who was responsible for the tragic accident.
In early August, a first-grade schoolboy passed away after he had been apparently neglected for about nine hours in a van contracted by his school to transport students.
The incident occurred on the second day of the school year at the Gateway International School (GIS) in Cau Giay District in Hanoi.
Police officers latered charged Nguyen Bich Quy, who was hired to supervise the transportation of students at the school, and Doan Quy Phien, the van driver, for “involuntary manslaughter."
