A 2-year-old boy apparently drowned in a drain along a street in Osaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture, on Sunday afternoon, while his parents were in a comic cafe, police said Monday.
Riku Endo, 2, was found drowned in the drain by his parents around 3:20 p.m. after they lost sight of him while they were in the comic cafe. Police said the family came to the game center where the cafe is located and believe Riku wandered off while his parents were reading comics in the cafe. Riku is believed to have accidentally fallen into the 70cm-wide and 55cm-deep drain. He was taken to hospital but died about two hours later.© Japan Today
