A four-month-old baby boy died at a nursery school in Benoni on Tuesday afternoon.

An employee who answered the phone at the Cow Jumped Over The Moon preschool said they cannot comment at this stage.

Police spokesperson Captain Nomsa Sekele said the baby's mother told workers at the nursery school that her child was sick when she dropped him off.

"She told the nursery school to check the baby and call her if there was any change," said Sekele.

"A worker saw the child was getting weak and called the paramedics. Upon their arrival the baby was already dead. "

The baby died at noon.
