A baby girl, a little under 1-year old, died in Hospital Santa Ana last Wednesday from Meningococcal Sepsis.
Although hospitalised at 06.30h, the doctors were powerless to prevent the child from dying hardly two hours later.
The family is receiving preventative treatment to avoid further cases.
The Provincial Health Board points out that this has been the only case in Motril in some while.
