Police in Bac Tu Liem District, Hanoi have apprehended a 43-year-old local man to facilitate their investigation into the unusual death of his 6-year-old daughter.

At the police station, the man, Le Thanh Cong, said he had used a chopstick to hit his daughter, L.H.A., at around 11:00 am on Thursday, the district's police told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Friday evening.

A.’s mother fed her congee and medicine at around 4:00 pm on Thursday, but the girl suffered heavy vomiting later and was taken to hospital for emergency treatment. 

However, doctors of the hospital confirmed that the child had been dead before arriving there. 

As there were signs of abuse on A.’s body, they reported the case to the police.

Police officers completed an autopsy on A.’s body on Friday afternoon.

Previously, A.’s teacher contacted the girl’s family for her absence from an online class on Thursday evening and was informed that she had passed away.

Local authorities and representatives from A.’s elementary school have visited and paid their condolences to the girl’s family following the happening.
