Three children drowned in Yautepec, Morelos


Three minors drowned on Sunday, June 12th, as they fell off the raft in which they were playing inside a pond, located in the town of Cocoyoc, municipality of Yautepec, state of Morelos.

According to information from the rescue forces, the three minors fell into the water and could not get out on their own, so they inevitably died without anyone being able to help them; when the emergency services arrived, they no longer had vital signs.

Around 5:00 p.m., the bodies of the three minors, 10, 13, and 14 years old, were removed from the water, and their relatives recognized them immediately. It is still unknown how the children could fall into the water without anyone noticing after being alone playing on the raft.

According to the information available, the minors are children of agricultural laborers who come from other states to Morelos to participate in the harvest of some crops temporarily.

The pond where the children died, is located in the Vicente Guerrero neighborhood of the town of Cocoyoc, in the municipality of Yautepec, Morelos.
