A 15-year old child was allegedly swept away by strong current whilst trying to cross the flooded Nakorovou bridge in Nalawa Ra on Sunday afternoon.

The incident occurred around 4pm near Nakorovou Village in Ra.

Search efforts have been put on hold due to the unfavourable weather condition.

We cannot stress enough the importance of supervision regarding children who are home today.

Please ensure they are supervised at all times and limit unnecessary movement as much as possible.
