Annals of the dead (6) .... the forgotten sign

Between Leiden and Voorschoten, along the canal called Vliet, is an abandoned industrial building. Next to the rusty door is a sign "Hans van Niekerk, Oud 7 jaar, 1. juni 1966". There is no other explanation. What happened? Was a child killed in an accident or drowned in the nearby canal?
