News from 12:30 p.m. – Death of a baby in a nursery in Lyon: what we know about the tragedy

In Lyon, an 11-month-old baby died on Wednesday June 23 in a private crèche in the 3rd arrondissement. According to the first elements, the little girl was poisoned. To understand the circumstances of this tragedy, a childcare assistant has been placed in police custody since Wednesday afternoon, a few hours after the death of the baby.

The child did not survive despite the rapid intervention of firefighters who tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate her shortly after 8 a.m. The baby was intoxicated just minutes after being dropped off at the private microcrèche. The establishment welcomes 9 to 10 children. Since the accident, the crèche has been closed.

According to the first elements of the investigation, the management of the establishment evokes the child’s ingestion of paint and salt crystals. An unconvincing explanation in the eyes of the police because according to the first findings, the girl had burn marks on her hands, face and mouth. The hypothesis of poisoning with household products, such as bleach, is preferred.

It is not yet known how many employees were present at the opening. It takes at least one person qualified to care for six children. For the moment, the national management of the private group, which has been managing more than 750 crèches for 20 years declines to comment.
