Kaohsiung authorities were yesterday investigating the death of a three-year-old girl who died of lung trauma after her father allegedly blew pressurized air into her mouth at a car wash in the city on Monday.
The father, surnamed Kuang (鄺), drove into a self-service car wash at a gas station, with the girl sitting in the front passenger seat, police said.
The girl was playing with an air gun at the car wash and accidentally blasted herself with pressurized air, Kuang later told police and doctors at a hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead after being taken there by her father.
However, the girl’s mother, who is divorced from Kuang, wrote on social media that “my daughter’s body is in the hospital morgue and we need to find out what happened to her.” [FULL STORY]
