Three children have drowned in a flooded illegal mine in South Africa’s northern Limpopo province, police say.
The parents of the three boys, aged between seven and nine, began looking for them when they failed to return home on Sunday evening, police spokesman Captain Mamphaswa Seabi said
“They searched the area and proceeded to the illegal mine hole which was filled with water due to the recent rains that fell in the area.
“On arrival, they were met by the sight of their children’s clothes next to the ‘dam’ and started anticipating that the worst might have happened,” Mr Seabi said.
The distraught parents contacted police, and the bodies of the children were later retrieved from the site , he added
