Six-Year-Old Athens Boy Dies in Tragic Incident
A six-year-old boy passed away in the hospital on Wednesday after he had been found the previous day near death, with a dog collar wrapped around his neck. He was discovered in a state of great distress in his family apartment in Palaio Faliro.
According to officials from Aglaia Kyriakou Children’s Hospital, although the child did not have a pulse when he was brought to the emergency unit, he regained his heart rate and showed some signs of recovery. However, the child eventually died from multi-organ failure and cardiac arrest less than 24 hours later.
The boy was reportedly found by his mother in his room in the family’s Palaio Faliro apartment. He was unconscious, with a dog collar wrapped tightly around his neck.
According to reports, there was a nail on the ceiling from which the boy hung the dog collar and possibly hanged himself, but this information has not been confirmed. Police found the mother in a state of shock.
The prosecutor did not order the parents to be taken into custody, but an investigation into the causes of the incident is currently ongoing.
