2-month-old chokes on milk

GEORGE TOWN - Lau Yi Yang lapsed into a coma after losing consciousness at home in Taman Desa Permata, Paya Terubong here about 6pm.

He was the only child of a working couple.

The parents took Yi Yang to a clinic nearby. However, the doctor failed to resuscitate the baby.

The parents declined to speak to reporters who gathered at the clinic and evaded them by carrying the baby's body wrapped in a cloth.

The couple left using the clinic's rear door and, not wanting to give up on their child, drove to Penang Hospital to seek help.

However, Yi Yang was pronounced dead on arrival and the grief-stricken couple burst into tears.

Yi Yang's body was sent for a post-mortem.
