The deceased children
Three children have been confirmed dead after they consumed noodles in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
The heartbroken relatives of the kids are awaiting post-mortem results to establish what caused their death
We reported that the children, Sinothando Ngwendu, 11, Olwam Ngwendu, 7, and four-month-old baby boy, Athenkosi Ngwendu, left with their grandparents to visit a family in New Brighton.
The oldest child was sent to a local shop to buy a packet of noodles, which they cooked and ate.
But when they arrived back home in Motherwell on Sunday, November 7, the older siblings complained about stomach cramps and nausea.
The children's grandmother gave them water to drink. But their conditions quickly deteriorated, and they were rushed to a clinic.
Tragically all three died before doctors could help them.
