Another baby dies, cause unknown

On Tuesday we reported on the tragic accidental death of two babies: one in San Pedro and the other in Hattieville. Today, we regret to announce number three. Few details are available, but a late afternoon release from the Police Department indicates that around 1:55 p.m. a two year old girl was brought to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, dead on arrival. She is Tiana Augustus of Ebony Street in Belize City. It is reported that the child went to sleep for an afternoon nap and never woke up. Police are investigating.

As for the incident we reported yesterday in Hattieville, a post-mortem has concluded that fifteen month old Julia Avila died of asphyxia due to drowning. Her body was found in a drain near her home. She had apparently wandered out of the house while her babysitter was in the bathroom.
