Adelaide police investigate death of 5 year old girl at home in Seaton

Police are investigating the death of a five-year-old girl from South Australia.

The incident occurred around 4pm on Wednesday in a western suburb of Adelaide.

NewsWire understands that police have not yet determined whether the death was a suspicious incident.

A deputy state police commissioner is expected to provide further details at 8:30 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

At around 4pm, emergency services were called to a house on Ballater Avenue in Seaton where a five-year-old girl was found unconscious.

Paramedics responded to an incident that authorities believe was cardiac arrest.

Detectives and crime investigators investigate the family background and any medical history.

“Senior police officials say the Serious Crimes Unit is assisting with the investigation due to the child’s age,” the Advertiser reports.

“It is believed that the parents, whose identities have not yet been established and who are not accused of any wrongdoing, are assisting with the initial investigation,” reports the Advertiser.

No arrests were made.

The five-year-old girl was treated on site but later died in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

“The case is now the subject of a judicial investigation. The police will remain on site for some time,” a police spokesman said on Wednesday.
