Four other persons were rescued and taken to the Kasoa Health Center but has since been discharged.

Human excreta from the pit were dug out onto the ground to facilitate the rescue of the victims but the residents believe this might cause an outbreak of Cholera.

He said: ?The waste will be put back into the pit when it is dried up but sanitation officers and Zoomlion will come to disinfect the place as an interim measure so that it wouldn?t affect anybody.?
