A TODDLER was killed in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan after falling into a large drain and getting swept by fast moving water, reported Tamil dailies.

The two-year-old boy was playing with his sister, nine, in an open area near his apartment on Monday when he fell into the drain.

Neighbours who saw the boy fall rushed to look for him, but failed.

The drain was reportedly full after a downpour earlier in the day.

Fire and Rescue Department officers who arrived at the scene also failed to locate the boy, as he had been apparently swept away by the force of the flow.

The victim's body was found three hours later in Sungai Labu near Salak Tinggi 3km away.
