Infant Dies After Drinking Cleaning Solution

A one-year-old girl died recently when she drank a glass of water which also contained silver cleaning fluid.

Identified as Triza Manlapig was declared deceased by Ospital Maynila, in The Philippines after her parents, Crisanto Manlapig and Mirriam Mabingnay, refused to let the police investigate their daughter's death, insisting it was an accident.

Manlapig signed a formal waiver to resist having his child's death probed, believing his daughter accidentally drank the silver cleaner which had been mixed into a glass of water. He said the girl had gotten hold of a glass of water laced with silver cleaner inside their home at the home in Paco, Manila.

The police have reportedly stated they were no longer conducting an investigation into the child's death. There have been several deaths due to the accidental or deliberate ingestion of silver cleaner in the past few years in The Philippines. Several concerned groups and individuals have pushed for a ban on the sale of the poisonous fluid.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
