Child dies in vehicle

Royal Cayman Islands Police confirmed Monday that officers were looking into the sudden death of a child that occurred on Saturday afternoon.

Investigators declined to confirm any details, but the Caymanian Compass has learned that the child died inside a vehicle that was parked outside a home located just off West Bay Road.

Police spokesperson Fiona Gallegos said that there were no suspicious circumstances in the child’s death and that family liaison officers were working with the little girl’s parents.

A post-mortem for the child was being scheduled to determine a cause of death.

Police made no mention of whether any criminal action would be taken in the case and noted they were still in the early stages of investigation.
