Norwegian shipping tycoon Morten Hoegh's two-year-old daughter Alexandra Lucy was found suspended from a blind cord in her cot, in the Hoeghs £12million (€15 / $19,5 million) mansion in Notting Hill, west London.
The baby's mother, Dana, discovered the child, at around 2.30pm on Monday, the Independent
“Please help, the baby's not breathing,” she screamed as she ran out of the house.
The child was rushed to the nearest hospital, but, despite paramedics' best efforts, died less than an hour later.
“An ambulance arrived and paramedics rushed in. The woman was in a total state, sobbing and wailing,” one neighbor stated.
Scotland Yard are ruling this a non-suspicious death, and believe the child went into cardiac arrest, strangled by the rope. A post-mortem examination is on its way, to determine the exact cause of death.
