Little Sidra (4) from Zwijndrecht died in hospital on Tuesday after being in a coma for five days following an accident during gymnastics class. This is confirmed by the family entourage Newspaper.

Her condition had been critical since Friday morning. But after five days in intensive care at the UZA in Edegem, Sidra Atmane (4) died in hospital on Tuesday. The family entourage confirms this Newspaper. On Easter Monday it had already become apparent that the little girl had to undergo an urgent brain scan. This showed that there was brain damage. The doctors gave her additional medication, but Sidra ultimately died as a result of a gymnastics accident.

The incident happened on Friday morning around 11 am in the gymnasium of the Sint-Martinus school in Burcht, a village in Zwijndrecht in Antwerp. With the activity ‘Travel around the world’, the toddlers in her class were allowed to climb and play on all kinds of gym equipment. What exactly went wrong afterwards is now being further investigated. It is known that the girl got her head stuck between the bars of a climbing frame. “They tell us that she was suffocated,” the parents said this weekend.

The girl could still be resuscitated, but was admitted to hospital in a coma. According to their entourage, the parents are in shock.
