The South Africa police of East Cape Town are currently doing a proper investigation on the cause of the miserable end of three children, aged 11 and 7-years old, as well as a 4-month-old baby boy.
It was alleged that these children started feeling ill after consuming a packet of noodles and they died on their way to the Motherwell clinic in South Africa.
According to Col. Priscilla Naidu, Police spokesperson, it is alleged that on Saturday, 6 November the three children accompanied their grandparents on a visit to relatives in New Brighton.
“They stayed over and on Sunday, 7 November the 11-year-old girl went to the shop and purchased a packet of noodles. She then prepared it and the three children ate it before leaving to go back to Motherwell,” Naidu said
When they arrived home in Motherwell, Sinothando Ngwendu (11) complained of feeling nauseous. Her grandmother offered her some water to drink.
“The other child, Olwam Ngwendu (7) also complained of stomach cramps and nausea. While being driven with private transport to the Motherwell clinic, they passed away. Shortly after the two children left for hospital, Athenkosi Ngwendu (4-months-old) also passed away while on route to hospital in another vehicle.”
A post mortem will be conducted to establish the exact cause of their deaths.
