Two boys die after consuming contaminated food in De Deur

DE DEUR - Two minors died after allegedly eating contaminated food at a local dumping site in De Deur. According to The Citizen, the boys aged five and nine were playing next to the dumping site when they consumed an unknown substance. The De Deur Police in the Sedibeng District were called to the scene shortly after their deaths last week Wednesday. Police spokesperson, Sergeant Thembeka Maxambela says the two boys complained that they were tired and hungry after they returned from the dump site before they fell to the ground and started foaming at the mouth. Both boys succumbed on the scene and were declared dead by Emergency Medical Services. Police investigations into the matter are currently underway, although a search in the area where they were playing yielded no results.
