High-tech robots to help find missing Khayalethu Magadla

Cutting-edge high-tech robots have been brought in to help find missing six-year-old Khayalethu Magadla who fell into a manhole in Soweto on Sunday, the Johannesburg Emergency Services (EMS) said on Friday.

The six-year-old was playing with friends near a park in Dlamini when he jumped on top of a board covering the manhole. It broke into pieces and swallowed the boy. The search by the EMS and members of the community entered day six on Friday.

A day ago, rescue officials probed a sewer split chamber in Klipspruit that could be the last hope for them to find the six-year-old.

On Wednesday, EMS spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi said the team started its search operation by combing through an area where the boy was last seen when he vanished on Sunday.

“Our technicians went underground to check on the line, whether they might find something or not, and we didn’t find the boy,” said Mulaudzi at the time.

“We moved to Eldorado Park where our Joburg Water colleagues are assisting to clear one of the pipes, so we can be able to check on it.”
