Baby dies after being hit by brickbat in Dhaka

A 16-day-old baby today died in a tragic accident as a brickbat fell on his head accidentally in Mirpur-1 area of Dhaka.

The deceased baby named Abdullah was son of Kabir Hossain, a private car driver and a resident in the area, said Dadon Fakir, officer-in-charge of Mirpur Police Station.

Abdullah’s aunt Tamim Sultana was standing in an alley in front of their tin-shed house holding him in her arms when a three-year old child accidentally dropped a piece of brick from the rooftop of a three-storey building beside the alley while playing with other children around 10:00am, the OC said.

The baby was rushed to Dhaka Shishu (Children) Hospital at Sher-e- Bangla Nagar and was then referred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where he died around 1:30pm, he added.
