A boy from Bangladesh was mistakenly packed in a container and sent to Malaysia.
The boy, 15-year-old Fahim, has been identified only by his first name. Malaysia’s national news agency Bernama reported that the boy was found in a shipping container in the West Port of Malaysia after a 6-day journey from Chittagong, Bangladesh.
A boy who slept inside a container
“The news agency reported that Home Minister Datuk Seri Saibudin Nasushan Ismail said the boy was believed to have fallen asleep inside the container.
“He was the only one found in the container and a complaint was lodged with the police as he had fever.
Hide and seek game
The boy was playing hide and seek, hiding inside the container and locked inside, the report said.
The boy was found in the container, disoriented and confused after days without food or water. Video shows officers taking the boy away on a stretcher.
It is reported that Fahim has undergone a medical examination and “authorities are working on his legal repatriation”.
