A young Iraqi girl from the Basra governorate died after falling into an open sewer hole.
The video, captured on a surveillance camera, shows the girl slipping and falling on the floor at first, only to get up and fall again into the sewer hole.
Dr. Hanan al-Fatlawi, head of Irada movement and member of former Iraqi parliaments foreign relations committee, condemned the incident and published the video on her Twitter account.
فديو مؤلم للطفلة البصرية"فاطمة" لحظة سقوطها في فتحة المجاري المكشوفة بلا غطاء مما ادى الى وفاتها … من يتحمل مسؤولية ذلك ؟؟ فتحات مجاري بلا اغطية ..

Her tweet read: “A painful video shows the moment that little Fatima falls into the open sewer hole that does not have a cover. The incident led to her death, who bares the responsibility for that?? Open sewer holes with no covers… I want a copy of this video to be sent to the governor of Basra, the governorate council, and the minister of municipalities.”
