Body of Toddler Who Fell Into Tijuana Drain Found

The body of the little boy who fell down a black water drain in Tijuana Sunday afternoon has been found.

According to Tijuana Fire Department Director Carlos Gopar Uribe, a call came in just after 1 p.m. Sunday that a child had fallen into the drain and needed emergency help.

The boy's mother said he was playing near the drain when he fell in, Uribe said. She apparently tried to save him, but was unsuccessful.

Using video cameras and fire crews, they attempted to go into the drain to save the boy. Uribe said the crews worked overnight and into Monday, but still had not found the toddler.

His body was discovered Wednesday afternoon, according to Secretaria de Seguridad Publica. Details on the discovery were not immediately available.
