Home treatment for lice kills child
SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS- An 18-month-old suffocated, apparently because of a home remedy for head lice that involved mayonnaise and a plastic bag placed on her head.
Police say the infant's scalp was covered in mayonnaise and a plastic shopping bag. The girl was left unattended and may have fallen asleep, which allowed the plastic bag to slide over her face and suffocate her.
No charges were filed and police and social services are investigating.
The treatment is considered a common home remedy for head lice.
