A 15-year-old boy who was playing hide-and-seek in Bangladesh was discovered in Malaysia, a few days later.

The boy, named Fahim, was said to have wandered into a shipping container while playing with friends at Chittagong Port.

Media reports say that the boy accidentally fell asleep in the container, which was then loaded onto a ship.

Authorities in Malaysia confirmed to media that Fahim was found six days later, dehydrated and starved.

He was taken for medical check ups as he had a fever when he was discovered. He was initially suspected to be a victim of human trafficking.
