The incident happened when Waisea Tuinukunuku, 7, was playing with his friends near Shree Satya Prakash Mandir in Nasole, Nasinu around 12 pm on Thursday.

It is alleged Waisea and his friends were closing the steel gate of the Mandir when it fell on him and hit his head.

Waisea’s other friends managed to escape.

“We were so close that his death just breaks my heart,” Mr Kebatolu said.

He said his younger brother was an active child, always playful, cheerful and a very kind-hearted person.

“My brother was interested in playing rugby and he always wanted to be an international rugby player and make Fiji proud.”

Waisea was the third eldest of five siblings and a Year Two student at Delanamasi Government Primary School.

The funeral service for Waisea will be held next week Wednesday.

When the Fiji Sun tried to get an interview with the members of the Mandir; they all went away.

Police spokesperson Josaia Weicavu confirmed that a steel gate fell on Waisea and he was rushed to the CWM hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

He has advised parents to look after their children.

Meanwhile, Police continue their investigations.
