I’d have reported this sooner if it had appeared in the local papers, but I haven’t seen anything. The Daily Mail is reporting that a British schoolgirl, named as Heather Kennedy, has died two days before her seventh birthday after falling down stairs during a family holiday in Playa de las Américas.
She tragically died yesterday morning, the report says, four days after being rushed to hospital with head injuries following the accident. After first going to a local hospital she was transferred to Candelaria hospital, where she had been in intensive care. It seems she had lost her footing and fell from stairs near the door to the second-floor apartment the family was renting.
