15 primary school students play by the river

On Sunday, June 21, the day of catching up in mixin town.

That morning, 12-year-old Xiaole, who had not eaten breakfast, was called out by his classmates to play. Xiaoles grandparents also want to go to the town. When Xiaole leaves, she tells her grandma to tell her when she goes home, and she will go home with her grandma.

Near noon, Xiaole tells grandma who hasnt come home in the town that she wants to play with her classmates instead of going home for dinner. Xiaoles grandmother recalled that at that time, Xiaole had instant noodles in her hand.

Shortly after Xiaole went out, Xiaoshuang, who lived not far away, was also called out to play by his classmates. According to Xiaoshuangs grandfather, he was cooking corn at home. Xiaoshuang took some corn and went out with his classmates. I didnt know they were going to the riverside, otherwise I would not let them go.

More and more students got together and walked to the Fujiang River, about 1 km away from mixin primary school. However, eight students, including Xiaole and Xiaoshuang, never came back.

The eight students who drowned were all from the primary school.

Affected by the epidemic situation, Tongnan primary school reopened from April 27 to July 11. Xiao Shuangs father said his daughter had just taken a graduation photo a few days before the incident.

Fujiang River is the largest tributary on the right bank of Jialing River, a tributary of the Yangtze River. It flows through Mianyang City, Suining City and Tongnan District of Chongqing, and then flows into Jialing River in Hechuan District of Chongqing. Tongjia village, mixin Town, is located at the junction of Tongnan District, Chongqing city and Suining City, Sichuan Province.

A number of villagers said that at one or two oclock on the afternoon of the 21st, they were all taking a nap. No one noticed that groups of students were walking towards the river. They only knew after the accident that a student doll fell into the water.

Tongjia village villagers introduced that the flow of Fujiang River in this area is relatively gentle, but due to the operation of sand dredgers, there are many hidden pits in the river, which are generally clear to adults and not easy to launch.

Villagers said that on the day of the incident, the hydropower station did not open the gate to discharge water. In addition to the villagers who herd cattle and fish, few people usually go to the riverside.

Mr. Yang, a villager who often fishes in the area, said that as long as the weather is not particularly bad, he usually fishes there on Saturday and Sunday. I just went to the market yesterday and didnt come (fishing). Otherwise, I saw it and I must have saved it.

In addition to the eight students who died, Xiaoyi is one of the seven others. Xiao Yis uncle, Mr. Jiang, said that according to Xiao Yi, she also fell into the water and climbed up the bank. After slowing down, Xiaoyi calls the police. Due to the location of the incident at the junction of the two places, the police call was received by Suining police.

According to the report, at 6:30 on the 22nd, seven of the students were salvaged after overnight search and rescue. 40 minutes later, the last student was salvaged, 8 of whom had no vital signs.

On June 22, the surging news published comments that relevant statistics show that drowning has become the number one cause of death for childrens abnormal death in China. About 57000 people drown every year in China, of which 56.58% are under 14 years old. Especially in many rural areas, there are a large number of rivers, lakes, ponds and other natural waters, while the awareness of rural family safety is mostly weak, and the supervision of children is relatively loose. In particular, many children belong to left behind children, and non parents guardians are weaker. This has led to the rural areas become a child drowning disaster area.
