YOUNG CHILD dies after washing machine tragedy with frontloading washing machine.
Tragically a young child was found unresponsive after managing to climb into a frontloading washing machine. The child was found unresponsive after the machine had been on, and sadly after being taken to hospital the child died.
The shocking discovery of the unresponsive child was made in Christchurch in New Zealand and police were called to a house at around 5pm on Friday. Police attended the scene of the incident at the Hoon Hay suburb and attended to the young child.
According to a police spokesperson, ‘One person was injured and taken to hospital where they later died.
‘Police are making enquiries into the circumstances of the death and the coroner has been informed.’
The tragic incident has highlighted yet again the dangers of frontloading washing machines. The death is not being regarded as suspicious and on Sunday many mourners gathered at the home to bid farewell to the young child, who was not even school age.
