Second tragedy for Malaga Three Kings family

THE mother of a boy crushed under the wheels of a float during a Christmas Three Kings parade in Malaga has died.

The 48-year-old mother-of-two was found unconscious by her young daughter, 9, at the family’s home in the
Pedregalejo area.

Initial reports suggested it was suicide after pills and alcohol were found at the scene, but it is now thought the woman died of natural causes.

She had previously suffered from heart disease, which may have worsened due to the extreme stress she was under following the death of her young son.

The six-year-old was run over as he collected sweets from the road during the traditional Three Kings parade on January 6.

The boy’s father, a doctor, attempted to revive his son at the scene but the child from his injuries.

The family had been enjoying a day out at the parade and the boy’s mother and sister both witnessed the
accident.

An autopsy to determine the cause of the mother’s death is to be carried out at Malaga’s Legal Medicine Institute, where coincidentally her husband works.
