Johannesburg - The search for a 10-year-old girl who fell into a storm water drain in Ivory Park continued on Wednesday morning, Johannesburg Emergency Medical Services said.

Spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi said around 20 emergency officials, eight police officers, and three dogs were searching the Kaalfontein stream, which runs through Ivory Park.

"So far, we have covered around six kilometres," Mulaudzi said shortly before noon on Wednesday.

The girl fell into the drain on Tuesday as she was walking home from school with her friends. Three other children also fell into the water but were rescued by their classmates.

Rescue workers searched for her from 14:00 until dark on Tuesday.
