Autopsy for 2-year-old

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, January 09, 2014

THE post-mortem examination of a two-year-old who was found floating in the Nakama River in Labasa on Monday afternoon will be conducted soon. Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said they were waiting for the pathologist to arrive in Labasa to carry out the examination on Nazhefa Siddiqa Bi.

"Right now, we are still waiting for the pathologist," she said.

"The examination is expected to be conducted sometime this week. Once the examination is conducted, we will then be able to ascertain the cause of death."

It was earlier reported the child and her family were spending the day at the river along with three other families. Her death is the second drowning case recorded in the Northern Division this year.

Ms Naisoro once again urged parents to supervise their children well at all times. The drowning toll stands at three compared with zero this time last year.
