When she returned to the daycare, she was informed by the employees that her baby was in a deep sleep and this made her rush to her baby but it was too late.

The Medical-Legal Institute of Campinas found out baby Emanuelle died as a result of food suffocation. G1 confirmed that the baby was given much food that blocked her airway; however, the daycare workers told her mother that the baby didn’t take her feeding bottle.

It was found out that the daycare was not licensed to run the business and that the anti-reflux pillow provided by the mother of baby took for her was not used by the workers.

What caused Emanuelle death is called Bronchoaspiration.

Bronchoaspiration occurs when a person swallows food, stomach acid or saliva into their lungs. It can cause suffocation and pneumonia. The strange fluid or much may contain bacteria that affect the lung.
