A terrible tragedy. A 4-year-old child died of a heart attack this Thursday March 21 at the Saint-Esprit educational institution in Beauvais (Oise). An investigation was launched by the public prosecutor, who went to the site to determine the causes of death. An autopsy is due to take place soon.

According to the first testimonies collected by Le Parisien, the child went to take a nap normally.

“It was the Atsem (specialized territorial agent for nursery schools) of the establishment, who went to see why he was not waking up at the end of the nap, who raised the alarm,” Franck Pia tells our colleagues. , mayor of Beauvais .

An important emergency system was quickly put in place within the private Catholic establishment. A helicopter was dispatched to the scene, carrying on board a pediatrician from Amiens. Unfortunately, despite the efforts made, the care provided could not save the child.

“Everyone is in shock”

On site, the management of the Saint-Esprit institution initially chose to remain evasive about the situation, causing incomprehension among certain students and parents, reports Courrier Picard . The decision was made not to provide information on the child’s health status in kindergarten.

The parents were simply informed by telephone that they had to collect their offspring through the rear exits of the establishment. The students were confined inside the classrooms with the curtains drawn before being invited to leave the establishment in small groups, avoiding using the courtyard.

Psychologists from the diocese are expected to be present this Friday to welcome and provide psychological support to both children and staff. “Everyone is in shock,” reports a Beauvaisian elected official present at the Institution du Saint-Esprit shortly after the tragedy to the Parisian. The little one was apparently in good health and showed no predisposition. It’s incomprehensible.”
