Girl dies after bags of intravenous fluid sabotaged

22nd April 2009

An investigation has been launched at an Essex hospital after 12 intravenous drip bags were found to be damaged.

Police carrying out the investigation are also conducting an inquiry into the death of a girl at Basildon University Hospital. Staff at the paediatric ward called in police on Sunday after the 12 damaged drip bags were found. Police confirmed the three-year-old girl taken to the hospital on Friday evening had died the following morning, though added that at this stage there was no evidence to link both cases.
