BÌNH ĐỊNH — A five-year-old boy has died on Tuesday from a cause not yet identified at a kindergarten in the south-central province of Bình Định, according to local authorities.

The victim is T.H.A. (residing at Du Tự street, Tăng Bạt Hổ Town, Hoài Ân District). On Tuesday morning, T.H.A. was taken to the school by his family.

He had lunch at 11am and took a nap along with other classmates. About 30 minutes later, while other children were already asleep, T.H.A. was still awake and showed unusual signs. Teachers immediately took him to Hoài Ân Medical Centre for emergency treatment. However, he died at the hospital.

T.H.A.'s body has been handed over to the family.

Mai Văn Lên, Chairman of Tăng Bạt Hổ People’s Committee, said the relevant authorities are investigating and clarifying the cause of the death.

Initial autopsy reports have excluded food poisoning, choking, or external forces as probable causes of death. — VNS
