Getting lost is perhaps one of the most traumatic ordeals any child and their parents could possibly endure.
That being said, getting stuck in a shipping container for several days and finding yourself in another country definitely tops that in terms of trauma.
This past Tuesday (16 Jan), a young boy from a foreign country was discovered in a container at West Port in Klang (pictured above).
The boy, who is thought to be from Chittagong, Bangladesh, was discovered by a a dock worker around 9 pm and subsequently alerted the police of the boy according to Klang Selatan district police commander, ACP Cha Hoong Fong.
Cha said in a statement today (20 Jan) that the boy had no identification on him and was later sent to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR), Klang, for treatment.
Thankfully, NST reported that the boy is currently in stable condition. Cha revealed that a vessel known as the MV. Integra departed from Chittagong on January 12 and arrived at West Port on Tuesday, unknowingly carrying the boy with their cargo.
Cha also mentioned that the child had explained how he was playing in the container with friends back home in Chittagong before accidentally being locked up.
Police have ruled out any signs of foul play and the case will now be under the jurisdiction of the Immigration Department to get the boy back home safely on the same cargo ship he came with.
