Three children drown

DINDIGUL: Three children drowned in a farm well at Thumichipalayam near Kallimandhayam in Oddanchatram taluk on Wednesday evening.

Sivalakshmi (13) and her relative Selvakumar (14) were trying to teach her brother, Kaleeswaran (11), to swim by tying a rope around his hip. The rope got loose and the boy started drowning. Sivalakshmi jumped into the well and tried to rescue him.

While she was struggling, Selvakumar, who held the other end of the rope, also fell in to the well. — Staff Reporter
