On October 4, 2020, a nine-year old girl named Farah fell into a manhole in Bhar Lazreg, a poor neighborhood in the otherwise extremely wealthy municipality of La Marsa. The channel had been covered only with flimsy wooden boards which collapsed when the girl walked over them, according to eyewitnesses from the neighborhood who spoke to Meshkal/Nawaat. Two days later on October 6, the Search and Rescue Teams of the Regional Department of Civil Protection in Tunis retrieved the child’s corpse, according to a statement posted on the Civil Protection’s official Facebook page by spokesperson Moez Tereia.
