A young girl tragically died when she stepped onto a loose manhole cover and fell into a septic tank.
The seven-year-old was walking down the street and stepped onto the manhole cover and fell in.
She became trapped in the tank in the coastal city of Sanya, the capital of China's southern province of Hainan.
Rescuers attempted to reach her but it was too late and the little girl was found drowned.
CCTV images show the little girl wandering by the roadside, with her parents nowhere to be seen.
