Young girl tragically died on family holiday after she contracted pneumonia.
Summer Griffiths, 7, was taken to hospital on Sunday after her condition quickly deteriorated from a small cough into a high temperature and erratic breathing.
“Doctors said the bacteria was super aggressive and got into her bloodstream. Eventually her heart gave out,” her mother, Ashleigh Griffiths told News Corp.
Summer was placed into an induced coma to try and help her breathe, but it was too late.
Ms Griffiths described her daughter as a “bubbly, happy and beautiful girl”, news.com.au reports.
“I’m still a bit numb right now. I honestly can’t believe I’m not getting my baby girl back,” she said.
The symptoms of pneumonia differ with each case but can include:
Pain in your chest
A cough that starts off dry but develops phlegm
Loss of appetite
A blue tinge to the skin around the mouth
Our thoughts are with the family. RIP sweet Summer.
