A baby in Skudai, Johor, was pronounced dead upon arrival at a hospital after her babysitter found her motionless on the bed, reported Chinese dailies.

The 30-year-old babysitter had found three-month-old Belle Teo unresponsive at about 11am on Feb 25, wrote China Press.

The baby’s father, Lawrence Teo, 28, said he and his wife were shocked to learn about the death of their first child and were still waiting for the post-mortem report.

He also said that his firstborn had been left unattended by the babysitter for about two hours before she was found.

Teo said he only found out later that the babysitter had been looking after three other babies besides taking care of her own three children, aged three to 10.
