A two-year-old boy died on Sunday after falling from a suspension bridge in Nantou County, police said.
The child, who was walking on the Aowanda Suspension Bridge with his parents, fell through a gap below the metal mesh railing and plunged about 90m to the riverbed below, police said.
He had no vital signs when he was found and was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital, police said.
The boy’s father, identified only by his surname, Hsu (許), said yesterday that his wife was holding the child’s hand as they walked across the bridge, but a gust of wind caused the bridge to sway heavily, and the boy lost his balance. [FULL STORY]
