Young boy's game of hide and seek goes badly wrong as he picks worst possible shelter and ends up 2,000 miles from home | The Sun

A YOUNG boy playing a game of hide and seek got more than he bargained for when he ended up 2,000 miles away from home.

The lad went a week without food and water before being discovered in a shipping container.

Fahim, 15, was playing in Bangladesh with his friends and gone inside the container to hide before falling asleep.

When he woke up, he discovered he had been locked in the container and was on his way to another port.

After he went missing, police, family and friends were worried he may have been trafficked.

But Fahim was just trapped in the container ship which had departed from Chittagong, Bangladesh, January 12.

After docking in Port Klang, Malaysia, police freed the boy after a worker heard a knocking sound while inspecting the container on January 17.

He was found to have a fever as a result of his ordeal and was taken to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang for treatment, but has healed.

Video footage showed the moment the lad stepped out, blinking at the sunlight and appearing to be exhausted and unsteady.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Cha Hoong Fong said: "There was no foul play in the incident. It was a miracle that Fahim could be saved."

He said: "We are not linking this to human trafficking, because the initial investigation found that he entered the container, fell asleep, and (was transported to) Malaysia."

Malaysian Interior Minister Saifuddin Nasution made a tweet announcing that the boy had been reunited with his family.
