A teacher found the child stuck in the net and he was immediately taken to a nearby healthcare unit, before he was moved to an ambulatory medical care facility where he died.

 

CEI Meninos nursery will remain closed until September 5 as police look into what happened.

 

Police said an investigation was taking place that could “possibly lead to a manslaughter charge.”

 

Police spokesman Douglas Dias Torres said: “I believe he put his neck through a gap in the net and he may have lost his balance and was unable to touch the ground with his hands.”
