The tragedy of a 14-year-old girl being the mother of a 1-year-old child was further deepened when the younger of the children died tragically last Saturday.

Police have launched an investigation into the death of the toddler, a resident of Paget Farm.

Police said that the child’s mother, a secondary school student, was at her stepfather’s residence in Spring, Bequia when she lost sight of the toddler.

The child was later found unresponsive in the pool around 4:40 p.m.

He was rushed to the Port Elizabeth Health Centre where he was pronounced dead.

  2. What could you have been doing to become unaware of the absence of you infant child? No you should be punished by a dust to dawn curfew until you are 21 years old.

  3. Rest In Peace little one, I know the angels in heaven is with you. Negligence on behalf of the mom, but I know you’re going through a difficult moment at this time. All is not lost, picked yourself up and move on. God is good. All the best to you.
