Gardaí say an infant died after falling into a rainwater lagoon shortly before noon in Donore in Co Meath.
The boy, believed to be 18 months old, was taken to Our Lady’s Hospital in Drogheda where he was later pronounced dead.
It is understood the boy had been visiting a relative’s farm.
Gardaí have described the incident as a ‘dreadful tragedy’.
i was told a story about a girl whos 22 month old took a bag of toys to the garden to play… well he put the bag over his head!!! the mum was 46 at the time and he was an only child, well she gave birth to a baby girl 6 weeks ago AGED 52 😯
Its heartbreaking that they are going through this…. my thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Even at the school the other morning, everyone was so somber, it was so sad, as his cousin is in the school and his grandparents are local to here aswell….
its so hard to watch kids…. i had 2 kids here on a playdate yesterday (both 5 years olds) one kept opening the front and back door, i had to take the keys out in the end…. my ds1 ran in and said x opened the front door and ds2 was gone out onto the street in his stockings and nappy, he could have been straight under a car or down to the building site!!!!!
I was in the loo at the time so out with my pants almost around my ankles 😳 😳 😳
It only takes a few seconds in a strange house for danger
