A 15-year-old boy who entered a shipping container during a game of hide-and-seek with his friends has been discovered a week later in another country.
The boy who hails from Bangladesh has been identified as Fahim. He said to have been playing with friends in the port city of Chittagong on January 11. Fahim hid inside the container and fell asleep, India Times reports.
Apparently, the container was then loaded on a commercial ship headed to Malaysia. This was where the boy was discovered in West Port six days later on January 17.
Fahim was said to have fallen asleep only to wake up 2,000 miles away from home and in Malaysia. It turned out that he sailed with an Integra container ship across the Indian Ocean after he was mistakenly locked up.
However, officials said he had a fever and was taken to a nearby hospital for examination. Following an investigation, officials gave a report that the teen had wandered into the container. This was of course, during a game of hide-and-seek.
Nonetheless, the Police had initially suspected the boy had been entangled in a human trafficking scheme.
