The search for the boy's body was conducted by the Kenya Red Cross officers and the county disaster team who tirelessly combed the waters of the dam for seven days. Despite the difficult conditions, the search team remained dedicated and committed to finding the boy's body, and their efforts paid off when the body was finally found.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of playing near water bodies, especially for children who may not fully understand the risks involved.
