A 13-month-old girl was so badly injured by a falling shopping cart in the Hanover region that she died shortly afterwards. The shopping cart in a hardware store in Garbsen was loaded with plasterboard and skewed, the police said on Sunday. The child was standing next to the shopping cart on Saturday when it overturned.
According to the information, the girl was with her parents in the hardware store. First responders resuscitated the child, it was flown to a clinic in a helicopter, where it died a short time later.
It was initially unclear why the shopping trolley could become so crooked that it tipped over. The police have started investigating the tragic accident.
