Newborn dies as brick falls from building

A 16-day-old child died in Dhaka's Mirpur after a brick fell on him from an under-construction. The infant was identified Abdullah, son of Kabir Hosen of Mirpur-1. Hosen works for a private firm. "The mother, with her son, was standing in front of their house yesterday morning.

A brick fell from the adjacent three storied building at that time," Mirpur police inspector Md Wahiduzzaman said adding two other kids were play on that building. They might have hit the block hastily.

Abdullah was rushed to Dhaka Shishu Hospital with injury mark on the head. He was shifted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) for better treatment. At DMCH, doctors later pronounced him dead.
