Cry for help

Police in Nakuru County have begun a man hunt for the house-help who watched TV as an 11-month old baby chocked to death.

Reports from officers from Teacher’s police post in Nakuru stated that investigations into the death of the child identified as Bay Jayden, had been initiated.

The family of the deceased child have called for help from Kenyans on locating the whereabouts of the maid who went missing after the incident that occurred in December last year.

The parents Mr Steve Opar and his wife Wendy Audrey claimed that their late son chocked to death in the house as the maid watched TV in the living room.

Neighbor rescue attempts

Opar who is a lawyer by profession, pointed out that he received the news concerning his son from his neighbor Naomi Wambui after she was informed of Jayden's condition by Opar's 16 year-old brother.

Wambui alleged that the maid only gestured the location of the baby as she watched TV after busting into the house.

The neighbor further explained that she found the boy lying on the back struggling to breathe.

She called the father and later rushed the child to the War Memorial hospital who was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The couple in mourning revealed that the tragedy occurred as they prepared to acquire a new house-help.

The bereaved mother of one Audrey highlighted that they were looking forward to celebrate Jayden's first birthday in January this year.
