Baza, Granada

A BABY has choked to death in Granada.

The six-month old tragically died in Baza yesterday after swallowing a plastic ball, according to Efe police and emergency services 112.

The father frantically rushed his child to a health centre but it was closed.

He ran to a pharmacy but they could not do anything to help the child.

Policia Nacional and the Junta are awaiting for the autopsy results, but expect to declare the death accidental.
