Tragic Deaths of Infants in Quintana Roo Due to High Temperatures

In the Maya region of Quintana Roo, two one-year-old infants tragically lost their lives due to extreme heat, likely resulting in heatstroke. The incidents took place in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

The first case involved a boy aged one year and ten months. He exhibited symptoms of dehydration such as vomiting and diarrhea. His parents rushed him to the hospital in the early hours of Thursday, May 23. Despite being discharged, the child unfortunately passed away at their home, located on 81st Street, between 66th and 68th.

The second case involved a one-year and five-month-old girl. She too experienced vomiting and diarrhea, along with a respiratory illness. Her parents initially took her to a private doctor, who advised them to take her to the hospital. Tragically, the infant died during the transfer to the hospital.

It is suspected that these tragic deaths were caused by the high temperatures in the area. To prevent heatstroke in children, it is advised to keep them hydrated by frequently offering them water, even if they do not appear thirsty. Dressing them in light, light-colored clothing, limiting their sun exposure, and never leaving them in a parked vehicle are also recommended precautions.
