Russian toddler dies in sidewalk collapse

01.08.12 01:57 PM

MOSCOW, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Police in western Russia say a toddler died after a sidewalk collapsed because of a ruptured water pipe, sweeping the child into an underground sewage system.

The press services of regional emergencies service and police department in the Bryansk Region said the Sunday incident occurred as the young mother was pushing the child in its pram down a Bryansk street when the ground beneath them caved in, ITAR-Tass reported.

A passerby managed to extricate the woman from the water-filled hole, but the child was presumed drowned by rushing sewer water, officials said.

The heads of the police, emergency and Investigative Committee for the Bryansk Region are supervising the recovery operation to extricate the child from the sewage pipe, ITAR-Tass said.
