A four-year-old boy in Bomet County died on Monday after his mother plunged him and his brother, 6, into a water well.

In an incident that has shocked residents of Chepkogen village in Chemaner, the mother is said to have forced her two boys into the 40-metre deep water well and left them to drown.

Police reports say that a neighbour heard the boys' distress cries, and informed other neighbours who joined hands and rescued them from the well.

The boys were rushed to Longisa County Referral Hospital.

"Sadly, the 4-year old boy passed on while his elder brother survived the harrowing ordeal," says the police report.

The 22-year-old mother has since been arrested.
