A kid from Bangladesh who was playing hide and seek with friends got trapped in a shipping container. He traveled a thousand miles for days and landed in Malaysia.
Malay Mail reported that the boy, known as Fahim, was found in one of the containers unloaded in Port Klang on Jan. 17.
Authorities believe he entered the container when the ship was docked in Chittagong city on Jan. 12. He was found alone inside, and was sent for a medical examination.
They said there were no signs of human trafficking.
A viral video on TikTok also showed a glimpse of the incident, with the boy looking frightened and exhausted.

After Fahim got enough rest, he told authorities that he was playing hide and seek with friends, unintentionally getting locked up in the process.
He then fell asleep, not knowing the ship was already leaving.
“The process for him to be sent home was made according to legal channels,” the Malaysia Minister for Home Affairs said.
