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.
