Police are investigating the death of another young child in Birmingham.
The two-year-old girl from Harborne died in hospital on Monday lunchtime after a dramatic dash by paramedics.
Two people, a woman aged 23 and a 47-year-old man were later arrested on suspicion of neglect. They were quizzed by detectives and later released on police bail pending further inquiries.
A Home Office pathologist conducted a forensic post-mortem to determine what caused the toddler’s death. The results of the examination have not yet been revealed.
The tragedy came two days after police found the body of three-year-old Alia Ahmed Jama at a house in Erdington and again throws the spotlight on child protection issues in Birmingham.
In this latest incident, a call was made to West Midlands Ambulance Service at 11.36am on Monday morning about the youngster having collapsed.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “ We can confirm we were called to a residential address in Harborne on Monday to reports of a child in cardiac arrest.
“Two ambulances and an incident support officer attended the scene. The child immediately received emergency treatment and was transferred to Birmingham Children’s Hospital whilst emergency treatment continued en route.”
West Midlands Police confirmed the child died in hospital.
The investigation is being led by detectives on the Public Protection Unit at Rose Road police station.
