When they eventually informed the school the matter got reported to the police immediately and a search party was launched. A dog unit and divers searched the accident scene where the boy fell in the river. Up till now no body was found...Desiree has water safety tips for children: When aa accident happens immediately inform an adult. Call the emergency rescue service at 10177. It is crucial to stay away from open waters when you are unsupervised. Ask an adult to accompany you and never swim alone. Always inform someone WHERE you are going, with WHO you are going and WHEN you will be back. Never stand with your back to the sea. Ensure that you have a PLAN so that you can help a peer who is in trouble in the water.WaterWise is sponsored by TNPA.New Orleans Primary School
