A short circuit is said to be the cause of a serious fire that broke out at the Serigne Abdou Aziz Sy Dabakh Hospital in Tivaouane. According to our source, it was the neonatal unit that was consumed by the flames. The tragedy occurred around 8 pm. The provisional tragedy reported 11 burned babies.
The prosecutor at the tribunal de grande instance of Thiès announced that 6 people were heard. In front of the press, Abdoulaye Bâ is uncompromising. « We will be unplacable », he promises.
The prosecutor, without dwelling on the details, gave information about the tragedy that cost the lives of 11 babies. Investigation operations have been set in motion.
« This is a real tragedy. It would be premature for us to pronounce on the causes of this fire unless we wait for the investigation to be completed. We are bound by an obligation of reserve. When we were informed at 23:00, we moved quickly on the scene to work with the commissioner in charge of the investigation to make the usual observations. This is how the justice system took over. We assure you that justice will be implacable with any person whose responsibility will be engaged.
