She was reportedly playing with the puppy given her as a present on her birthday, but got bitten on the cheek in the course of the fun.
According to reports the little girl requested for the puppy as a gift on her birthday, but ironically the gift has rather led to her death at the Saint Francis Xavier Hospital at Assin-Foso in the Central Region.
The little girl from Adansi Swedru who was reportedly playing with the birthday puppy got bitten on the cheek in the course of the fun.
Her father took her to a nearby clinic where a tetanus injection was administered to her.
After some days, the little girl was sent back to the Assin-Foso Hospital where she died on Monday after she was diagnosed of end stage rabies.
