AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD boy drowned in the Mumong Sports Complex’s swimming pool yesterday, the Royal Brunei Police Force said.

Police said they are still investigating the cause of death, without giving further details.

Witnesses said many people jumped into the swimming pool to help the boy before he was brought to Suri Seri Begawan Hospital in Kuala Belait.
