Antoinette Assegaai says her daughter started getting sick at suppertime when she was rushed to the hospital a month ago.

We rushed her to the hospital. When we got there they gave the child to the doctor and she was not breathing at all. The doctor called me later on and asked me if I came with two kids from Westdene. I said no. The doctor then explained there is another child with the same situation.

We're seeking answers, the owner of the daycare centre is not saying anything at the moment.
