POLICE say they have opened an investigation after a twelve month old baby died at his house in Pontevedra on Wednesday. The child had drank a bottle of milk at around 8am and was put to bed when his mother noticed that he seemed to be unconscious rather than sleeping; she then called the emergency services at 8.35am.
The ambulance team arrived rapidly and tried to revive the infant but sadly had to eventually confirm the child’s death. A judge attended the scene as well as local and national police before the decision was made to open an investigation. Police sources say that move is to determine a concrete cause of the babies death but early indications are that it was from natural causes; there are also reports that the child had asthma.
