Five runaway teens from Bengaluru rescued at Panambur beach

Mangaluru: September 2, 2015: The presence of mind of the Lifeguards of Panambur Beach Tourism Development Project has helped in five runaway children from Bengaluru being rescued at Panambur beach on Tuesday.


While four of them are residing at Mathikere one boy is from Yeshwanthpur, all Std IX students of a private school in Mathikere. The lifeguards have handed over the children to Panambur police and the parents of the children have been informed.

Vasanth Salian, life guard head at the beach said: We noticed these five children between 8.30am and 9am on the beach. We got suspicious and I asked one from our team to talk to them. The boys said that they had come to one of the boy’s aunt’s house and she had left them at the beach. When asked the number of the relative, they refused saying the aunt will come and take them back.

Sensing something was amiss; Vasanth quizzed two boys separately and knew they were not telling the truth. Later, he got hold of the tab one of them was using and when he turned off the flight mode, he started getting calls from frantic parents. Vasanth informed the parents about the boys being in Mangaluru and said he would hand them over to the police, so that they could get custody of the boys from them when they arrive.

Vasanth said one of the boy’s with whom he had interacted was very smart for his age and seemed to be the leader of this misguided operation. Regarding the reasons given for their allegedly running away from home was implausible, Vasanth said.

The life is hectic these days. Parents do not have time for their family, Lack of love ,affection and respect towards the elders are the reason why the children take such decisions on their own. We cannot blame them alone it is due to the mistake of the parents....

"Daring children" not aware of the society. Thanks to the lifeguard who noticed the children and informed the parents. God will reward you for your good deeds in future.

The youngsters do not know the value of anything, as they are provided with ready made things. The parent s never discuss their problems with children and take the advantage. Shame on such children.

The children have to first concentrate on their studies. Never take life so easy. The time once gone is gone forever, so never take risk and be in vain.
