Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a three-year-old toddler went missing after falling into an uncovered manhole in Mumbai on Wednesday night.

The incident took place around 10.20 pm in Goregaon's Ambedkar Nagar area. In the CCTV footage the child is seen roaming near what seems to be the edge of a road.

He walks around an electric box after which he slips and falls into the uncovered manhole. According to news reports, operations were underway on Thursday morning to rescue the child.

"We are investigating the matter.We will continue our search. We will see who is responsible for this," Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Praveen Pardesh said,"

The incident comes just days after the city was left reeling from a heavy bout of rains. Many people died in several rain-related incidences.

In a similar incident in 2017, a doctor Deepak Amrapurkar also died after falling into the manhole. Heavy rains were also predicted in the city for Thursday as well.
