Stroller accident: State Coroner gives findings
The tragedy happened on March 3 last year.
A four-month-old baby died of head injuries sustained on March 2 after his 21-month-old cousin pushed a stroller he was in, causing it to collapse.
The deceased has not been named to protect his cousin's identity.
State Coroner Janet Wang has found that the stroller was not fully secured when it was opened.
She added that it could only be fully opened with considerable force being exerted by both hands. A click would be heard to indicate that the locking mechanism was engaged.
However, she noted that the baby's guardian, his 29-year-old aunt, was not sure if it was fully opened and could not remember hearing a click.
Said Coroner Wang: "The safety of the stroller was compromised by its antiquated and rusty condition which made it difficult to engage the locking mechanism.
"This rendered the stroller more susceptible to collapse when an additional force is applied to it."
