Meanwhile a two-year-old girl of Kasongo village in Mansa District in Luapula Province drowned after accidentally falling into a well yesterday.
Luapula Province police commissioner Elias Chushi confirmed in a statement that police in Mansa received a report from a 19-year-old Beatrice Mulenga of Kasongo village that her daughter, Agness Chitalu had drowned in a well.
Mr Chushi said the deceased was with her fellow toddlers playing around uncovered well when she slipped and fell into the well on Saturday around 09:15hours at Kasongo village.
The police commissioner stated that the body of the deceased was retrieved and conveyed to Mansa General Hospital mortuary.
