Villupuram’s ‘burning baby’ dies

A one-year-old baby boy who made news last year after he reportedly caught fire spontaneously died in Mozhiyanur near Villupuram on Wednesday. Police said the baby, Vijayramachandiran, son of Karna and Rajeswari, was brought to the Government Medical College and Hospital with complaints of severe diarrhoea.

Doctors, on examining the baby, advised the parents to take him to Jipmer. However, the couple did not leave for Jipmer. The parents later found the baby unconscious and took him to Mozhiyanur.
