On the evening of the 29th, a 4-year-old boy was buried in a sandy beach while playing on the coast of Nichinan City, Miyazaki Prefecture, and was taken to a hospital but died.

According to police, the boy had an accident while traveling from Akita prefecture to Miyazaki prefecture with his mother during the Golden Week holidays.

Around 4 pm on the 29th, a person who passed by a report saying that "a child is buried in a sandy beach" was on fire at the Ibii coast in Nichinan City, Miyazaki Prefecture.

When firefighters and police rushed in, a boy was found buried in the sand between the wave-dissipating blocks, rescued about an hour later and taken to a hospital in Miyazaki City, but died.

According to the police, the boy was Riki Harada (4) from Nikaho City, Akita Prefecture, and his mother and his acquaintance visited Miyazaki Prefecture for sightseeing during the Golden Week holidays and had an accident.

According to the police, there is a place where the wave-dissipating block is buried in the sand on the coast of the site, and the police fell between the blocks for some reason while Harada-kun was playing in the vicinity and was buried in the sand. I am investigating the situation at that time in detail, considering that it may have happened.
