Child Near Drowns – Parents Playing Cell Phone

For the second time in two weeks, a child has almost drowned in Liuzhou while its parent is busy playing on their cell phone.

Liuzhou “Beach”

On Tuesday (25th July), a 5-year old boy fell into the river at 4:30 pm in Liuzhou’s artificial beach on the riverbank.  Local life guards saw him fall and went to the rescue. He had swallowed a lot of water and was choking, but otherwise unharmed if a bit green in the face.

The rescuers then went in search of the child’s father who was found 80 meters away, playing with his cell phone and totally oblivious to the drama.

With temperatures reaching into the high 30s C, more and more people are visiting the “beach” with their kids – and their phones. Sooner or later, one will be going home without their child.
