A 10-month-old baby died after falling from a sofa, reported Harian Metro.

Ahmad Jibril Shah, together with three other young children, had been under the care of a childminder for the past six months.

The father, Mohd Izam Shah, 37, said Jibril was healthy when he was sent to his minder's house in Puchong at 2pm on Tuesday.

He said Jibril would usually cry when he was sent there.

So, the father thought nothing of the crying on that day.

Izam was away working in Kedah when he received a frantic call from his wife Nor Hidayah Sulaiman, 28, saying something had happened to their son.

"She rushed over to the minder's place. She was shocked to see Jibril's body wrapped in a blanket in the nanny's house."

Jibril was then sent to Serdang Hospital. No sign of abuse was found on his body.

Izam said the nanny claimed that Jibril was injured after falling from the sofa.
