Chimwemwe Ward Councillor Sebastian Mukonge has disclosed the sad development in an interview.
Mr. Mukonge said the toddler fell into the uncovered shallow well as she was playing with her friends.
He noted that at the time elders were informed, the toddler had already died.
Mr. Mukonge said the community helped to retrieve the body and was pronounced dead by health officials at the Hospital.
He has since appealed to the community members against leaving shallow wells wide open as that is a risk to young ones.
Mr. Mukonge stated that had the shallow well be covered, a life would have been saved but it was unfortunate that nothing could be done.
