A joint search and rescue team here on Friday found the body of Zakaria Sesama (11) who died after being swept away by floodwaters from the overflow of Liliba River, near Kupang`s Environmental Health Academy complex on Thursday.

Zakaria, an elementary school student, was playing with his friends including Alan Haden (7), in the shallow river on Thursday when suddenly heavy rains fell on the area.

The river then overflowed and killed Alan Haden, while Zakaria Sesama was carried away by strong currents. Haden`s body was found by rescuers on Thursday evening while Zakaria went missing but his body was discovered on Friday. (*)
