A Cape Flats community is shocked and enraged after the sudden mysterious death of two infants.
Manenberg residents say the three-month-old babies died within a few hours of each other after receiving their routine vaccination injections at the local clinic.
Hajiera Liewenberg, 23, who was with mom Nikita Le Grange, 20, at the Manenberg Day Clinic on Wednesday, says 14-week-old baby Tyler died in his sleep.
“When she brought him for his three-month shot this morning, he was fine.
“Then he fell asleep here at the hospital and when she went home, she put him to bed,” Hajiera explains.
“When she went to check on him, she saw that his face was blue and then her aunt rushed back to hospital with Tyler.”
Hajiera says doctors tried to save the infant but it was already too late.
