KOTA BARU (Bernama): A seven-year-old boy drowned in a canal before his body was found in a flooded padi field in Felcra Teratak Batu in Pasir Puteh on Monday (Dec 2).

Mohammad Ilham Hasmadi was reported to have followed his uncle to an irrigation canal around 6.30pm on Sunday to fish when he slipped from a plank bridge and fell into the canal, swollen with flood water.
