Police spokesman Samsor Maarof confirmed that the toddler, whose name has not been reported, died four days after being hospitalised.

He said that medics informed him that the toddler, who reportedly choked on a hunk of bread while staying at a babysitter’s home in Selayang, was unconscious when she was brought to the hospital around 10am.

Maarof said: “At the emergency ward, the medical officer found a piece of bread during the resuscitation process.”

He revealed that the two-year-old died of hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE) with multiple organ failure four days later.

According to reports, HIE can occur when there is not enough oxygen and blood flowing to the brain.

It is unclear if the authorities are investigating the girl’s death further.
