Megan Burns took two year old Scarlett to the emergency room after visiting two local GP’s. She was told it was tonsillitis and sent home with antibiotics. Sadly her little girl died later that night.
“After waiting three hours to be seen, the doctor told us it was tonsillitis. He prescribed some numbing spray and antibiotics. The car ride home she seemed to pick up for the first time in days. She was eating and drinking and talking all happy,” the distraught mother wrote in a Facebook post.
“[Scarlett’s father] Leon got up to tuck in her own bed and he said she was making funny noises, so I rushed into her room, to find my beautiful baby unresponsive, I tried everything to wake her up, and screamed for Leon to call an ambulance.
“But unfortunately her heart wouldn’t start again. My sweet angel Scarlett passed away in the early hours of Thursday morning. There is a full investigation going on with the police, and they are questioning the doctors who saw to Scarlett, so hopefully I should have answers.”
Scarlett passed away on 25 February 2016.
Megan is determined to find answers. “I will fight this til the end, I know it won’t help my little angel, as long as it stops other children being neglected by the NHS then so be it.”
RIP precious Scarlett. We hope mummy and daddy get the answers they need very soon.
