Post-mortem on 14-month old inconclusive

Makarios hospital

A post-mortem on Wednesday failed to determine the cause of death of a 14-month-old girl who fell in a private swimming pool in Paralimni last week.

The post-mortem was carried out at Nicosia general hospital by state pathologist Angeliki Papeta who was unable to arrive at any conclusions because the girl was being treated in the ICU since the incident.

Tissue samples were collected for further tests in a bid to determine the exact cause.

The girl had fallen in the swimming pool of a house in Paralimni where she had been holidaying with her parents.

She was pulled out and the parents with neighbours administered CPR before rushing her to Famagusta general hospital.

Due to the severity of her condition, the child was transferred to Makarios children’s hospital in Nicosia where she was placed on a ventilator until she succumbed on Tuesday morning.
