BABY DEATH INQUEST.

Byline: By GEORGINA O'HALLORAN

A BABY girl sustained serious head injuries after being shaken by a relative, an inquest heard yesterday.

Baby Bolu Adjibade died at Temple Street Hospital for Sick Children on February 29, 2004, two days after she experienced a brain haemorrhage.

The child's great aunt Jumoke Otubanjo told Dublin City Coroner Court she was looking after Bolu at her home in Blanchardstown, Co Dublin, on the day she stopped breathing. She said: "I noticed she wasn't breathing. I held her out from my body and I shook her."

State Pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy told the court Bolu died of a haemorrhage in the brain.

The DPP has directed no prosecutions be brought.
