Toddler dies from injuries to his head after fall at home

IPOH: A six-month-old boy died on Saturday due to injuries to his head after a fall at his home in Manjung, about 74km from here.

Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Tengku Mohd Zailan Tengku Ahmad said the boy's two-year-old brother was playing with him on the bed during Wednesday's incident.

"The elder sibling had pulled the victim from the bed, causing his head to hit the floor.

"Their babysitter was in the kitchen at the time," he said.

ACP Tengku Mohd Zailan said the victim was rushed to the Manjung Hospital, and was transferred to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh.

"The toddler died three days later," he said, adding that the cause of death was a result of an accident, and not abuse.

"However, the case is still being under the Child Act 2001," he said.
