A 60-year-old man, Malam Danjuma, his son, Ibrahim, 35, and Aminu Gaye, also 35, died in a pit latrine while trying to recover a cellphone at Yar’Gwanda village in Tsanyawa Local Government in Kano State on Sunday.

Abba Alasan, 28, one of the rescuers was, however, rescued from the latrine.

According to Alhaji Saminu Abdullahi, the Public Relations Officer of the Kano State Fire Service, the incident occurred Sunday morning.

“We received an emergency call from Tsanyawa Fire Station at about 11:00 a.m. from one Aminu Yar’gwanda, that four men had been trapped inside a pit latrine.

“We immediately sent our rescue team to the scene at about 11:15 a.m.

“Danjuma was trying to retrieve a cellphone that fell into the pit latrine when he got trapped. Thereafter, his son entered the pit toilet to save his father and also got trapped.

“Gaye and Alasan also entered to rescue both men and got trapped,” he said.

Abdullahi said the first three victims were rescued unconscious while the fourth victim was rescued alive.

He said that all the victims were handed over to Mr Iro Lado, a Superintendent of Police, at the Tsanyawa Police Division.

The Public Relations Officer said the police conveyed the victims to Bichi Special Hospital for medical attention where doctors confirmed the trio dead and one still alive.
