An eight-year-old boy died after falling into the sump of a building under construction, at Old Ghansmandi of Mahankali in Secunderabad on Wednesday.

While the parents, who work at the construction site, were busy, Praveen slipped into the sump and died, police said. The boy’s parents —Illaiah and Jayamma – who hail from Medak, had come to the city for work only three weeks ago.
