T&T police probing death of child allegedly struck in the head with cutlass

A 68-year-old man in Trinidad and Tobago is assisting police with their investigation into the death of a 15-month-old baby, who was pronounced dead at the San Fernando General Hospital, shortly after she was struck in the head with a cutlass during a family argument.
 
Police said the incident occurred on Sunday night at the family's home in Taradale, south west of Port-of-Spain.
 
The child has since been identified as Sariah Williams.
 
The authorities said an argument broke out between the 68-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman who was holding child.
 
The man is reported to have swung the cutlass, intending to chop the woman, but striking the toddler to the head.
 
Other relatives subdued the man while the woman and the child were rushed to hospital.
