The Linden Poison
… Mother, daughter waiting in the hospital
As Police continue their investigation into the poisoning of two Linden children by their mother, who also consumed the toxic substance, the youngest of the two children’s health has deteriorated. This, according to Police, resulted in the six-month-old being transferred from the Linden Hospital Complex to Georgetown Public Hospital at around 12:00h on Friday. The 24-year-old woman and her eight-year-old daughter are still patients at the LHC. Division 10 Divisional Manager (Upper Demerara-Berbice), Superintendent Hugh Winter has indicated that the Police will need to seek legal advice on the way forward. The Area Manager advised that the Force was continuing with the investigation. Following the investigation, Superintendent Winter said the file will be sent for legal advice. Police had launched an investigation into the circumstances that led to Linden’s mother’s District 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) hospital and her two children, who were admitted to Linden Hospital Complex after eating a poisonous substance. Reports are that the 24-year-old mother allegedly fed the substance to her eight-year-old daughter and six-month-old son before eating it herself. The incident is reported to have occurred at approximately 10:00h in Wisroc, Linden, and they were later rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC).
