Gardaí investigate toddler's 'sudden death' in Cork city

A toddler has died following an incident at a house on the north side of Cork City, with gardaí investigating whether she may have become tangled in a blind cord.

Emergency services rushed to a house in Delaney Park on Dublin Hill in Cork shortly before 1pm today after the alarm had been raised.

The girl, who it is believed could be as young as one year old, was rushed by ambulance to Cork University Hospital, along with a Garda escort.

She was pronounced dead a short time later.
