    Mexico - Ivan Sanchez, 2, Tijuana, 3 Feb 2015

    A 2-year-old who reportedly fell into a Tijuana sewer through an open manhole remained missing Tuesday, as scores of rescue workers scoured underground tunnels and pipelines for the boy.

    The parents of Iván Alexánder Sánchez, who turns 3 on Feb. 28, told authorities that he fell into the sewer as their family walked to a park on Sunday at about 11 a.m.

    At the vacant lot where the boy disappeared, rescue crews excavated several yards underground to expose and break openings in sewer pipes. Concerned that the boy may have been swept away by the flow of sewage waters, authorities rushed to explore 20 miles of pipelines that eventually emerge from the ground near the U.S.-Mexico border.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    More details:
    The body was located inside the Tijuana sewer system about 2.5 miles away, said Carlos Gopar Uribe, director of the city's fire department.

    “At a distance of 4,100 meters from where, lamentably, this poor creature suffered this accident, the boy was found,” he told reporters.

    Note the crime involved:
    Manhole covers are frequently stolen in Tijuana to be sold as scrap material. The sewer cover where Iván went missing was replaced in November but reported missing again late last week, said Alfonso Álvarez Juan, director of the Public Services Commission for the state of Baja California.
    So for the $5 or so a thief made from this theft a toddler's life was lost.
