Baby died on first day at nursery

A baby boy died on his first day at a daycare centre in a private home.

Detective Sergeant Renay Rock told a press conference: “We can confirm that that was his first occasion at this specific nursery.”

She was speaking after three-month-old Roman Edwards-Easton died on Monday.

Chief Inspector Na’imah Astwood said an investigation into the boy’s death was ongoing and she could not comment on the cause of death.

She added that a post-mortem examination would be carried out by the overseas forensic pathologist in Bermuda as a result of the death of American rugby player Mark Dombroski.

Emergency services rushed to a house at Swansbay Hill, Pembroke, on Monday after a report of an unresponsive baby.

Roman was taken by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, but was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information should telephone Detective Sergeant Renay Rock on 717-0996.
