Serdang district police chief, ACP Ismadi Borhan confirmed that the victim was rushed to the hospital after the victim’s parents called the police. The parents were contacted by the 40-year-old babysitter who told them that their child was unconscious.

Initial examination by doctors at the hospital found that the baby have internal bleeding in the head. This led the police to believe that there may have been elements of foul play and abuse regarding the incident.

Post-mortem of the victim shows that the bleeding is likely caused by a fall from a high place.
