AS investigations continue into alleged negligence in the drowning deaths of three children under the age of 10, police are once again reiterating the importance of vigilance.

This comes after the death of another toddler in the Vunato Creek in Lautoka on Saturday afternoon.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said there was a trend noticed in which children under 10 years old were becoming victims.

"Of the eight cases, three are under 10 years of age while the next highest recorded figure is that of those between 17 and 25 years of age," she said.

"Further analysis shows the majority of the cases have been of victims drowning while swimming in rivers."

As investigations into negligence continue in the three cases recorded so far, the Fiji Police would once again like to reiterate the importance of supervision."
