3-Year-Old Boy Walks Into Flour Mill, Lights Gadget, Dies | Nashik News

NASHIK: A three-year-old boy died after accidentally turning on a flour-grinding machine after walking into it at a bakery next to his house in the city’s Panchavati district on Thursday night, police said Friday.
The boy, Rihan Sharma, had gone to his father’s bakery, Umesh, at around 9:15 p.m.
“When he turned on the grinder, his body became entangled in the gadget’s rubber belt. Hearing him scream, Umesh went to the bakery and turned off the gadget,” said Sunil Shewale, the officer police in charge of the investigation.
According to the doctor at a private hospital where the boy was taken, the bones in his body – from the neck area down – were fractured. “There were no external injuries to the body. But there was profuse internal bleeding. When he was taken to hospital, his condition was extremely precarious. We tried everything to resuscitate him. When our efforts failed, we pronounced him dead around 11:45 a.m.,” the doctor said.

Rihan was Umesh’s only child. Shewale said there was no one in the bakery when the boy entered. “It’s a small bakery run by Umesh and his brothers. The grinder wasn’t big, and the boy managed to get in there without any difficulty and turn it on,” Shewale added.
Shewale said police are continuing to investigate to rule out foul play in the incident.
