Police have launched an investigation after a toddler found seriously hurt at a home in Birmingham died in hospital yesterday.
Emergency services were called to an address in The Green, Northfield, at around 3pm on Sunday following reports that a 21-month-old child was unconscious.
The girl was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital in a critical condition but was pronounced dead at 8.30pm last night.
Enquiries are on-going and the address has been secured by police for continued forensic examination.
A 28-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of causing or allowing serious injury to a child.
Both have been granted conditional police bail – to addresses away from the location where the child was reported injured – while investigators conduct further enquiries and to allow time for medical tests to be completed.
Inspector Ian Wilkins from West Midlands Police Force CID, said:
Anyone with information can call police on 101.
