A four-year-old boy from Shanghai died after a manhole cover broke under his weight, causing him to fall into the sewer below. Tongtong (alias) had accompanied family members on a delivery run to Baoshan, and was playing in the manhole’s vicinity whilst they unloaded the goods when the tragedy occurred. After being rescued from the sewage, he was sent to a hospital for emergency treatment but unfortunately doctors were unable to save him. The hole has since been covered by a concrete slab. One netizen feigned an official tone by blaming the boy for being overweight, which is often said of vehicles when roads collapse.
