Latest Alert, 1045am: A girl [N. Dina Deve, 11, of Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil (SJKT) Mambang Di Awan] is dead. 19 found, safe. 2 pupils still missing. Read the Bernama report here.
updated 8.45am: BH 27/10 Usaha mencari dan menyelamat sejak pagi ini masih belum temui 22 murid yang dikhuatiri hanyut akibat jambatan gantung runtuh di Kuala Dipang.
NST 27/10: 22 pupils, aged 10 to 12, believed to have drowned after being swept by strong currents when they fell into the Kampar river in last night.
Prayers for the children, and their parents. BH On-line has the story, here. It's news that won't make your morning. It made me think of my precious ones who just left for school a while ago.
These are dangerous times for kids, in case we forget. The Malay Mail have a story in today's edition, coming out noon, about a child rapist on the prowl. The latest victim is an 8-year old.
Do you know where your precious ones are?
