Srilanka, Colombo: A toddler in Sri Lanka died after falling into hot curry early this month, reported ‘Mawbima’.
The two-year-old accompanied his parents to their relative’s home in Palama Junction in Minipe for an alms-giving ceremony on April 7.
The child followed his mother who went into the kitchen to serve food. She opened the lid of the container comprising potato curry, which was on the floor, and the toddler accidently fell into the hot curry.
